Twitter expands research team to study content surveillance

-

Social media company Twitter said on Thursday it plans to provide more data to outside researchers studying online disinformation and content policing as part of what it says are efforts to increase transparency on the platform.

The company will also open application forms for more people working in academia, civil society and journalism to join the Twitter Content Control Research Group, a group the platform formed earlier this year and is still working on. is in testing and has access to datasets.

While researchers have studied the flow of malicious content on social media platforms for years, this has not happened with the direct involvement of these companies.

In an interview with reporters, Twitter said it hopes the data will lead to new types of investigation into how efforts to combat online disinformation work.

Twitter has already shared data with researchers about coordinated efforts supported by foreign governments to manipulate information on Twitter.

The company said it now plans to share information about other areas of monitoring and moderating content, such as potentially misleading tweets.
