Twitter will provide more information to research groups examining content moderation ...

Twitter intends to provide more data to external researchers who study online misinformation and moderation, according to the social media company on Thursday, and is putting in a position to increase transparency on the platform.

A collaboration between academia, civil society, and journalism will be underway in the future, with additional individuals collaborating in the Twitter Moderation Research Consortium, which was established in pilot mode earlier this year and has been granted access to the datasets.

Though researchers have studied the flow of harmful content on social platforms for years, they have often done this without direct involvement from social media organizations.

During a briefing with reporters, Twitter said it expects these data to lead to further exploration into how to better combat internet misinformation.

Twitter has already shared data with researchers about the need for external governments to manipulate information on Twitter.

The company said it intends to share information about other content moderation topics, such as tweets, that have been labeled as potentially misleading.

Twitter announced ad-hoc how it advises posts from users who do not follow this week. Twitter is eager to develop tools that allow users to control and feedback on that content.

"We want to make it simpler for everyone to connect with social media sites that interest them, with millions of people joining up for Twitter every day," a blog post wrote.

Twitter is testing a "X" tool that may be used to remove suggested tweets that users do not wish to see on their timelines.

Twitter''s Competitor Meta Platforms announced in July that it is planning to double the percentage of recommended content that serves its users'''' feeds on Facebook and Instagram by the end of 2023.
