Censorship or Freedom of Speech? Twitter’s Approach to Misinformation
At Design Matters 2.0, Anita will dig deep into the theme “Real Fake”. She’ll expose the challenge of dealing with misinformation on Twitter and debate if it’s Twitter’s role to manage that content. She’ll also expose the creative ways politicians, activists and extremist groups create “fake” content, and when and how Twitter enforces its policies, even when it’s from the national leaders or public figures.
