According to foreign media reports,According to a leaked twitter presentation, the platform is considering tagging tweets from politicians and other public figures if they contain lies or false information.It is reported that harmful misleading tweets will be labeled in red or orange. Twitter plans to launch the "one possible iteration" feature on March 5, similar to Wikipedia's anti misleading message.

Although the project is still in a very early stage, according to an email provided to the verge by a twitter spokesman, the tagging system is a design model involving community feedback options, "error information is a key problem, and we will test a variety of different methods to solve it."

Tweets from Senator Bernie Sanders, House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, whose inaccurate tweets were tagged in orange, can be seen in the leaked presentation. However, it is unclear how Twitter will decide which tweets will be tagged with the new hashtag.


Earlier this month, twitter announced that it would launch a new "manipulated media" policy on March 5, including a ban on fraudulent sharing of fake photos, videos and media on the platform. In addition, Twitter has other tools that try to help users identify which information on its platform is inaccurate. Last May, the company unveiled a tool to combat anti vaccine information by moving users to the vaccines.org website run by the Department of health and human services. Last week, the company announced that it would expand its election integrity policy, which prohibits users from sharing false or misleading information about how to participate in elections or other civic activities by directing users to the official website census.gov when they search for certain keywords related to the 2020 U.S. Census.
