Twitter Has Introduced Aliases To Its BirdWatch Program

Earlier this year, Twitter launched Birdwatch, a pilot program that allows people to identify incorrect information in tweets, now it’s allowing users to contribute under aliases.

Basically,  users that wish to offer notes on tweets,  can now do so under an alias. The idea is to encourage all users to feel comfortable offering feedback and to help stop misinformation.

Twitter has announced it made this change based on research that found aliases have the potential to reduce bias. Basically, they want to put the focus on the feedback and not on the author of the feedback.

Birdwatch will also now have profile pages for its contributors. Ideally, this will help with accountability, even with the introduction of anonymity.

The idea behind Birdwatch was to use a community-driven approach to help stop the spread of misinformation and allow users to share knowledge. 

Now you can just be a part of the community anonymously!
