Twitter collaborate with news sites to tackle disinformation


Twitter Inc will partner with Press and Reuters to more quickly provide perfect information on the social networking site as part of an effort to fight the spread of misinformation.
“Rather than waiting until something goes viral, Twitter will contextualize developing discourse at pace with or in anticipation of the public conversation,” Twitter said.
It is the first time Twitter has formally collaborated with news organisations to promote accurate information on its site. Twitter will work separately with the two rival news agencies, and will focus initially on English-language content.
Vice president of global business development, said in a statement that the news company had a “long history of working closely with Twitter, along with other platforms, to expand the reach of factual journalism. We are particularly excited about leveraging AP’s scale and speed to add context to online conversations, which can benefit from easy access to the facts,” he continued.
