Researcher Jane Manchun Wong posted mockups of a feature that Twitter is reportedly exploring. According to Wong, Twitter is developing “three levels of misinformation warning labels” including “Get the latest,” “Stay Informed” and “Misleading.”

Wong clarified that while the “feature and the level name of each misinformation label…are real and created by Twitter,” the rendering is based on her own speculation.
Twitter has not yet publicly confirmed the new feature, though the tech giant recently re-rolled out a system that asks you to review your message before sending it based on the context.
A Twitter spokesperson told HYPEBEAST that the company was exploring new ways to help people stay informed but did not disclose any additional information about the new feature.
Facebook is also tightening its policies around false information sharing and will now begin taking steps to call out repeat offenders. Last week, the company said it would begin flagging pages that continue to share misinformation.
