Twitter Begins Labelling Tweets with “Misleading Information” About Vaccines

Social media Twitter has announced that it will start labelling tweets that may contain “misleading information” about Coronavirus vaccines. This development came following its December 2020 decision to take action against these contents.

The platform has indicated “it will begin to apply labels to tweets that may contain misleading information about Coronavirus vaccines since March 1. 

Twitter has stressed that “since the introduction of the COVID-19 guide, more than 8,400 tweets have been removed and petitions have been filed against 11.5 million accounts worldwide,” while revealing that it will launch a warning system to warn users before their account was deleted.

“We believe that the strike system will help educate the public about our policies and further reduce the spread of potentially harmful and misleading information on Twitter, particularly by repeated violations of moderate and high severity,” it said through a statement posted on its blog.

In this way, the social network has detailed that “tags will be applied by team members when they decide that content violates policies”, before adding that “it will start with English content”, although it will subsequently be expanded to “other languages and cultural contexts”.

Twitter has also revealed that a strike will have no account-level consequences, although a second will involve a twelve-hour block, which will also happen to a third party. In case there is a fourth notice, the account will be locked seven days, while permanently suspended if there are five or more “strikes”.
