In order to avoid misinformation on the platform, Twitter has developed a public access tool called “Community Notes”, to perform fact-checking processes and add context to certain editions popular.
According Twitterthe main objective is to avoid misleading publications, and in the event that one of the grades written by users is rated as helpful by different people, this can be shown publicly to build more trust in this tweet.
Although for now, Community Notes is a feature available to users of UNITED STATES and the context can only be added to the editions accounts of people who live in that country, certain users around the world can access them and even apply to be eligible under the collaborators that publish community notes.

According Twittera contributor can be anyone with a profile on the social red which meets the appropriate requirements and which, in addition, can comply with the standards of the community.

Even when they are not admitted as collaborators, the users can assess the contributions other people as “useful”, “somewhat useful”, and “useless”. This does not mean that moderation of content depends only on a button, because after choosing a optionindividuals must justify why they considered certain contributions to be so qualified.
Persons reviewing the content are not required to browse the social red and voluntarily rate the usefulness of the ratings that appear, but the rating system Twitter will activate a tab in the platform Community Notes called “New”, where different posts that already have a comment and are awaiting review appear. Like the home page, this tab updates your content periodically.
