Twitter adds COVID-19 Vaccine fact sheet to users feeds
If you use Twitter on your phone, you may find a huge banner at the top of your timeline the next time you log in. Twitter is pushing to inform its users about the COVID-19 vaccine through a fact sheet that sits on top of the feed.
Twitter’s War Against COVID-19 Vaccine Misinformation
As The Verge reports, logging into Twitter may show you a hard-to-miss box with a link to learn more about the COVID-19 vaccine.
If you follow the link, you’ll arrive at the official Twitter COVID-19 vaccine guidance event which goes into great detail about the available vaccines. Twitter collects the data from various medical organizations so readers can get unbiased information about the vaccine.
This move is very likely a counterattack toward those who spread misinformation about the vaccine. Some of these people are even using the panic surrounding COVID-19 and the vaccine to scam others.
Therefore, as the world begins to vaccinate against COVID-19, be ready for more warnings and informative material in your feeds as rumors and hearsay run rampant on the internet.
Getting to Know the COVID-19 Vaccine
If you have questions about the COVID-19 vaccine, be sure to check the official Twitter event that covers the topic. You’ll find plenty of information from scientifically supported sources to help put your mind at ease about the vaccine.
If this isn’t enough to convince you, you should check out YouTube too. The video-based company has recently published some PSAs to help inform people about the vaccine and encourage them to get the jab.
