    Video: Is X’s Community Notes Misinformation-Proof?

    Recently, microblogging platform X Corp (formerly Twitter) announced a ‘Community Notes’ feature for its Indian users. The feature works as a platform measure to tackle misinformation by inviting “Contributors” to comment on published posts and rating the most helpful response.

    It is described by X as a “collaborative way to add helpful context to posts and keep people better informed.” The feature allows X users to give “added context” to any post. Contributors are allowed to leave notes on any post and “if enough contributors from different points of view rate that note as helpful, the note will be publicly shown on a post.”

    Any user who has not received a notice for violating X’s rules, has been on the platform for at least six months, and has a verified number can become a contributor. All contributors start with the ability to rate notes, and over time, can earn the ability to write.

    However, considering the sophistication of IT cells in India, it’s worth asking whether the Notes will end up becoming a boon or bane for the Indian community, especially during election season. In this video, MediaNama journalist Vallari Sanzgiri explains how Community Notes works and the ways in which it can be misused to boost misinformation.
