Twitter Would Like You to Actually Read Stories Before You Retweet Them

Twitter has begun testing a new feature that will prompt users to think before they retweet an article.

The feature is currently being tested on Android users.

If a user decides to retweet an article before they actually read it, Twitter may prompt them to open it first.

“Sharing an article can spark conversation, so you may want to read it before you Tweet it,” Twitter Support tweeted.

This is the latest in an effort from Twitter to curb misinformation and encourage meaningful discussions on the site.

Who is that one person on any of your social platforms who is always posting outdated articles as if the information is new?
