Twitter ranks worst in climate change misinformation report

A report ranking climate change misinformation gave Twitter (recently rebranded as X) only a single point out of a 21-point scorecard when assessing policies aimed at reducing inaccurate information – the worst out of five major tech platforms. The Climate of Misinformation report by Climate Action Against Disinformation looked at Meta, Pinterest, YouTube, TikTok and Twitter for their content moderation policies and efforts to mitigate inaccurate information such as climate denialism. The group, which is made up of dozens of international climate and anti-disinformation organizations including Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth, released the report to draw attention towards climate misinformation on major platforms and makes the claim that big tech has become a “complicit actor” in accelerating the spread of climate denial. https://www.theguardian.com/technology/2023/sep/20/twitter-x-musk-climate-misinformation-social-platforms

    Elon Musk and Twitter should do better to clear this foul record.

      Social media platform should be on the front-line to encourage greater knowledge and measures to combat climate change.

        It's a shame... X should be on the front line creating awareness and educating people about climate change but it's actually doing the contrary

          Social media platform should also join in this fight by providing correct information instead of pulling the rope behind by not advocating for climate,

            any platform conveying information and creating awareness towards climate should really be mindful of misinformation as this will give false narratives
