About automated account labels

We’re testing a labeling feature that allows automated accounts to identify themselves so you can have a better Twitter experience.


What’s an automated account and why do they need labels?

Examples of automated accounts you might see on Twitter include bots that help you find vaccine appointments and disaster early warning systems. When these accounts let you know they’re automated, you get a better understanding of their purpose when you’re interacting with them.

What are automated account labels?

When accounts send automated Tweets to share relevant information about content on another account, automated labels help you identify good bots from spammy ones and are all about transparency. 

How do automated account labels work?

Right now, a limited number of people are participating in an invitation-only test which allows them to identify their automated accounts with this label. We hope this added context helps you trust the content you see.

Where will I see the label?

Once an account accepts the invitation to our test group, an “automated account” label will appear on their account profile under their profile name and handle.
