Twitter expands feature that lets users flag misleading tweets

Twitter Inc will expand its test feature which allows users to flag misleading content on its social media platform to Brazil, Spain and the Philippines.

Twitter had introduced the pilot test of the feature in August last year, as a part of its effort to reduce misinformation on its platform.

Twitter first tested the feature in the United States, Australia and South Korea.

Since it was first announced, Twitter said it has received around 3 million reports from users who have used it to flag tweets which they believe are in violation of its policies.

Twitter had launched another program called Birdwatch, which lets participants write notes and provide additional context to misleading tweets, though those notes are held on a separate website.
