Twitter said on Wednesday that it was testing a new feature that attempts to limit the sharing of articles by users who do not read them. This feature – which asks users if they have read an article before retweeting it – appears to be aimed at slowing the spread without notice.

Twitter’s support team said, “Sharing an article can spark conversation, so you may want to read it before tweeting.”

In response to one user, Twitter mentioned, “We wanted to test a way to improve the health of the conversation as it gets started.”

But it said users would “always have the option” to proceed with the retweet.

Twitter and other platforms are struggling to include misinformation, often passed on by users who fail to review the details of the comments they are sharing.
