The company introduced such changes on May 19 as part of a new “Crisis Misinformation Policy.”

The policy is designed to “to help protect the conversation on Twitter, starting with a focus on the Russian invasion of Ukraine.”

“Especially during moments of crisis, misleading claims can go viral while the truth is still asleep. To help address these dynamics, we won’t amplify or recommend the potentially misleading content about crises, as soon as we find credible evidence a claim may be misleading.”

The likes, replies, and shares will be disabled for tweets that violate the new rules. Such restrictions may reduce the spread of messages by 30-50%.
