Coronavirus: Staying safe and informed on Twitter - Updates
  • Clarifying how we assess misleading information
  • An update to our proactive enforcement and metrics on credible information
  • An update on our proactive enforcement and spam detection
  • Resources for those battling substance abuse disorders, in recovery
  • Working as a part of a global movement of stakeholders and partners on COVID-19.
  • When searching for #COVID19 and related terms, a proactive prompt will direct users to authoritative information from health organizations across the world. People in the U.S. will be directed to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The prompts are now active in 70 countries and growing. 
  • Twitter continues to work with partners across the world to provide support, for example: 
    • Partnerships: Maintaining open lines of communication with relevant multinational stakeholders, including the CDC, World Health Organization, numerous global government and public health organizations, and officials around the world, to ensure they can troubleshoot account issues, get their experts verified, amplify public health messages with our pro bono advertising, and seek strategic counsel as they use the power of Twitter to mitigate harm. 
    • #AdsforGood: Twitter is providing free ad support credits to nonprofit organizations to build campaigns to fact-check COVID-19 content and provide reputable health information to the widest possible audiences.
    • Research: As a uniquely open service, Twitter data is being used in research every day and our research hub is publicly available. Twitter welcomes applications for the use of Twitter data to support research on COVID-19. As with all those seeking to utilize public Twitter data, researchers must adhere to Twitter data access policies, which are designed to protect the privacy of its users’ data. 
    • Donation matching: Twitter set up a dedicated internal COVID-19 campaign page through our employee donation matching program to support humanitarian response and relief efforts around the world.
