Twitter A feature is being tested that suggests users read an article before sharing. If the person has not already done so, this is to promote informed discussions.

“Sharing an article can trigger a conversation. You may want to read it before tweeting it,” the message said.

So far, this message has only been tested in Android, when people retweet an article without reading it.

“We wanted to try to improve the health of a conversation at the beginning. And if you remind people to read an article before sharing, it leads to a more informed discussion, “explains the social network.

This action is performed after Twitter marks two messages from Donald Trump, President of the United States, with a confirmation notification. The notification included a blue exclamation mark under the President’s tweets, asking readers to learn more about the subject and redirecting it to a page with news articles and fact-checking information. Trump then threatened to regulate or shut down social media companies.
