We think it’s important to help you have better and safer conversations on Twitter –– and that starts with being more informed about what you’re sharing with your followers.
If you choose to Retweet or Quote Tweet an article that you haven't opened recently on Twitter, you may see a prompt asking if you’d like to read the article before Retweeting or Quote Tweeting it. We believe this helps to give you better context and to reduce uninformed sharing on Twitter. When you see this prompt you’ll have the option to open and review the article. You can still go ahead and Retweet or Quote Tweet the article without opening it.
Similarly, if your Tweet reply is identified as potentially harmful or offensive language, we may ask you, via a prompt, if you want to review it before sending. There will be options to send, edit, or delete the Tweet reply. And if you think we make a mistake, you can let us know.
Note: Tweet reply prompts are only available to people using Twitter on iOS and Android in English. Retweet or Quote Tweet prompts are available to everyone using Twitter.
