    In March last year, Twitter introduced warning notices to combat misinformation on its platform. While the labels were initially limited to coronavirus misinformation, they were later expanded to include misleading tweets about elections in U.S. app detective Jane Manchun Wong, who has now discovered that Twitter is working on three levels of misinformation warnings.

    According to the screenshot shared by Wong, tweets that contain misinformation are marked as “misleading” with a warning icon and a “Learn more” link with more detailed information. With the new labels “Stay Informed” and “Get the Latest”, Twitter also helps users stay up to date and get the latest information on important topics. While details are not currently available, the “Stay Informed” and “Find Out the Latest” labels could help spread more authoritative information on topics such as COVID-19 and vaccinations.

    Twitter is also said to be working on bringing emoji reactions to its platform, much like Facebook and the best Android messaging apps. According to Wong, the upcoming feature will have five reactions: Like, Cheer, Hmm, Sad and Haha. However, as can be seen in the tweet above, the feature is currently in the works. Only the reaction buttons Hmm and Haha seem to have an emoji next to them. However, it’s still likely that the tweet responses will be rolled out to users later this year.

    It remains to be seen whether tweet responses will be limited to users with a Twitter Blue subscription. The subscription service is expected to cost $ 2.99 per month and include exclusive features like the ability to choose custom app icons, color themes, and a reading mode that makes it easier to read threads. In addition, users with a Twitter Blue subscription have access to the “Undo Tweets” option.
