Twitter’s Community Notes announced the new feature that rolled out globally for all users to enjoy and experience starting today.
This is part of Elon Musk’s Twitter 2.0 efforts which aims to give “power to the people,” where information and data come directly from them for the public to access.
Users may rank the Community Notes in a tweet if it is helpful and accurate, or if it has no relevance to the said trend or topic on the thread.
It aims to provide more context and background to a certain topic, where people can contribute their sentiments or two cents regarding it.
How to Use Community Notes on Twitter?
For people wanting to read only on the platform’s Community Notes, it could be found below a tweet where contributors already added context for people to read, get information from, and rate.
On the other hand, if one wants to contribute to Community Notes, one may sign-up here and apply as a contributor for certain topics, especially trending ones.
Twitter 2.0: New Features
Ever since Chief Twit’s arrival on the platform, he has been promising new features to the public for their experience to see a significant change to the social media, one that promises a streamlined experience for all. The new age of Twitter aims to deliver a different platform than people were used to from its old management and leadership.
One of the Twitter 2.0 features coming soon is the emergence of “view counts” for every tweet that people make, and this is the new form of interaction whose numbers will be as important as likes or retweets.
Another upcoming feature is a step up on its content moderation actions, one that would center on a more automated response which leaves behind the manual process in the past. According to Twitter, its new system will help determine more violators on the platform and help get them the right sanctions they deserve for their misbehavior on the platform.
Despite the many controversies surrounding the short-word social media company, its new management still aims to deliver an experience where people will find new features to utilize for their social media needs.
The new Community Notes will help users get more context to a specific thread and how it rose to a trend on the platform.
