Twitter is introducing a way to report posts as “misleading” for the first time.

Many of the large social media networks have been accused of not doing enough to fight the spread of disinformation during the Covid pandemic and US election campaigns.

Twitter’s reporting function has never offered a clear option for such posts.

It said the new feature was only a test, and will only be available in a few countries to begin with.

“Some people” in Australia, South Korea, and the United States will now see an option for “it’s misleading” when trying to report a tweet, the tech giant said.

It also warned users that the system may not have a significant effect

“We’re assessing if this is an effective approach so we’re starting small,” the company said on its safety account.

“We may not take action on and cannot respond to each report in the experiment, but your input will help us identify trends so that we can improve the speed and scale of our broader misinformation work.”
