On Wednesday, Twitter announced that it will begin testing the new feature so users can think before they post articles they haven’t read.
This test is restricted to English users in English. If a user decides to re-correct before reading an article, Twitter will ask them to open it before requesting it. He did not say when he intends to bring the features to additional operating systems.
“Sharing an article can spark a conversation, so you might want to read it on Twitter,” Twitter said. “To help encourage informed discussion, we’re testing a new prompt on Android.
When you display an article you haven’t opened on Twitter, we can first ask if you want it.”
To help encourage informed discussion, we are testing a new quiz on Android. When you forward an article that you haven’t posted on Twitter, we may ask if you want to open it first.
This test is just the latest on Twitter in an effort to distort misinformation and promote meaningful discussions on the platform.
Last month, Twitter launched a test that allows users to restrict their ability to respond to their tweets on Android, iOS, and the company’s web app.
As of now, some users are able to limit their responses to everyone, to the people they follow, or to the people they refer to. In recent months, Twitter has come up with additional features, such as the ability to hide specific replies to tweets. It is also testing a cleaner interface for wired conversations on the platform
