Twitter introduces 'strike system' to curb Covid-19 fake news

Mar 02, 2021 13:55 IST | By Editorji News Desk

Twitter has announced that it will be rolling out a strike system against users tweeting misleading information about the coronavirus vaccines.
The social media giant introduced a 'strike system' that will gradually escalate to a permanent ban after the fifth offending tweet.
The strike system is introduced to educate the public about the policies of Twitter and reduce the spread of potentially harmful and misleading information, Twitter said in a blogpost.
The second and third strikes will each result in the violating account being blocked for 12 hours.
With a fourth violation, an account will be sidelined for seven days. A fifth strike will get account permanently suspended, Twitter said.
