Tech writer Andy Ihnatko joined Boston Public Radio on Friday to speak about Twitter's new methods of fighting misinformation spread by public figures.

"One of the ideas they're playing with is for high-profile accounts, if there is a falsehood in a tweet, it will be posted but with a big inserted red tag that says this statement is untrue," Ihnatko said. "I believe that Twitter's heart is in the right place."

Twitter has previously announced that they're instituting a ban on altered and doctored videos, like deep fakes, Ihnatko added. These new Twitter regulations differ strongly from Facebook's apathy, he noted.

"Facebook simply doesn't care," he said. "Institutionally, I believe that Facebook doesn't care about anything but the bottom line in the business."
