Twitter has started rolling out a new feature where users can report a tweet if they find it misleading. This new feature is part of Twitter Safety and is currently available in the USA, South Korea, and Australia.
To use this feature, click on the “three-dot menu’ at the right of the screen in the Twitter app, and then click on “Report Tweet.” After that, you share the reason for which you are reporting that particular tweet. It is then followed by a selection option – “It’s misleading.” Then you will have to choose from one of three options – Politics, Health, or Something else. Then there is another step to deep dive into the subject.

It has been a long time since I joined Research Snipers. Though I have been working as a part-time tech-news blogger for the past few months, it still feels good to be part of the team. Besides this, I am working with a Canadian-based real estate business and running my own financial blog.
