Twitter officials want users to take a look at the text before retweeting the share

While forwarding sharing can express their attitude to something, many social media users have developed a bad habit of just looking at the title, ignoring the text, and then retweeting it. To encourage users to take more time to learn more, Twitter officials today posted a tweet through their @TwitterSupport account seeking to read the article carefully before sharing, paving the way for a more accurate and meaningful discussion.

Twitter officials want users to take a look at the text before retweeting the share

By length limits, the title of an article is often short, making it difficult to reflect the full picture of the matter. If you comment after reading through the article, the discussion around the right topic makes more sense.

In addition to Twitter, users on social media platforms such as Facebook and Reddit share the same bad habits — often just looking at the title and summary assume seducing the body content and then retweeting it with one click in their message stream.

Fortunately, Twitter is currently testing at least a new approach on Android mobile clients to reduce such blind messaging. When a user tries to share an unclicked article, the app asks them if they want to look at the body first.

While anxious users can ignore the tip and continue to forward, Twitter does. It is not known when the feature will be expanded beyond the Android platform.
