Twitter has increasingly the spotlight after the purchase by Elon Musk and tries to reassure users and investors with some new initiatives.
He announced the expansion of Community Notes, which launched in 2021 under the name Birdwatch under the management of former CEO Jack Dorsey for a small group of users, and are now available worldwide.
It is a function that according to the platform aims to improve the quality of information, and allows individual users to contribute to the "fact checking" of tweets by adding context.
To participate, registration is required in compliance with certain requirements, such as never having violated the rules of the platform.
They are "a collaborative tool that allows users to access more accurate information," the company says.
In a dedicated section of the social network there are notes that can be evaluated or suggested by each user with a participatory system, the doubt always remains as to how the platform will be able to control any partisan or harmful ideas.
According to the Washington Post, Elon Musk dismantled Twitter's safety committee, created in 2016 to address child exploitation, hate speech, suicide and other issues on the platform.
In the last few hours, the company has also launched Twitter Blue, available in the United States, Canada, Australia and New Zealand, on iOS, Android and also in the web version.
A paid service for which you receive the blue verification check mark and give you the possibility to publish longer videos.
Furthermore, according to Musk, the platform plans to increase the maximum tweet length limit from 280 characters to 4,000, without giving further details.
