Ahead of 2018 U.S. midterm elections, Twitter is taking a visible step to combat the spread of misinformation on its famously chaotic platform. In a blog post this week, the company explained how it would be adding “election labels” to the profiles of candidates running for political office. “Twitter has become the first place voters go to seek accurate information, resources, and breaking news from journalists, political candidates, and elected officials,” the company wrote in its announcement. Twitter will partner with nonpartisan political nonprofit Ballotpedia to create the candidate labels. After receiving consent from each candidate, Twitter will apply the labels to each candidate profile.
