Twitter testing feature to let users flag fake news

Twitter is reportedly testing a feature that would let users flag tweets that are considered false or inaccurate, as part of their commitment to twart the spread of disinformation on their platform.

In a report by The Washington Post, the new feature may appear as a small tab displayed in a drop-down menu alongside tweets.

Twitter spokeswoman Emily Horne said the company had “no current plans to launch” the feature but said she would not comment on whether it was being tested. “There are no current plans to launch any type of product along these lines,” said Horne.
