Twitter begins to develop a tool to prevent the spread of false news

Twitter has begun updating its tools to combat false news by developing a new tool, according to The Washington Post.

According to the source, the tool is still in its early stages, but it will allow the user to refer to news or tweets with false information to prevent its spread and alert users about the doubts about them.

The network will rely on self-learning of the machine and on artificial intelligence in this tool in the hope of raising the awareness of the algorithms to contribute to the reduction of the spread of false news that has become easily accessible in social networks in general.

Facebook and Google have stepped up their efforts recently to curb the spread of false news. The former cooperated with some official authorities, which will check the communications to verify their authenticity and constantly evaluate the links. While Google has updated its news section fully with a special section of reliable news.
