Twiiter has created a new feature for bot accounts that automatically post. The feature, currently being tested with a limited developer group, will allow users to identify bot accounts. It is currently unknown when the feature will be available.
Showing that it will try to make its general design similar to Instagram with a decision it has taken in the past days, Twitter announced that it is working on a new feature. According to the statements made by the company, bots and automatically sharing accounts will now have a special label. In this way, users will be able to learn about automatic and bot accounts.
There are many accounts that auto-post on Twitter. These accounts share the current version of the same content at certain times of the day or at certain intervals. This can be a weather report or various data about the number of coronavirus cases per day. Here’s the new feature that Twitter has begun testing with a limited developer audience, which will tag such accounts.
The new tag, which has been tested according to the statements made by Twitter, will also appear on users’ stream pages. In other words, it will not be necessary to log in to that account to understand whether the account is a bot or not. In this way, users will have the opportunity to obtain information about the pages they follow.
