Twitter announced that it will start to warn users whenever they like a tweet that contains factually disputed information.
Like a disputed publication, the user receives a notification where he is invited to learn more about the tweet in question. This is a measure that follows on from another feature on the social network, where users are warned whenever they share tweets with articles they have not read.
