Twitter testing new feature to track those posting fake news


The past months Twitter has been the best news source for most Zimbabweans, although some of the information can not be verified if they are real or not.

Twitter is currently testing a new feature that would help track the original tweeter. Once rolled out, the feature will help cyber cell and other authorities nab the one who started a hateful or fake/bad tweet

In a report Twitter confirmed that the Original Tweeter tag has been rolled out for testing to a small number of android and iOS users across the globe.

The “Original Tweeter” could help on users spreading fake news and being abusive on the micro-blogging platform.

This feature will also help the Law enforcers to identify and put questionable accounts and bullies on trials.
