Twitter Wants Its Users’ Help in Developing Its Policies on Deepfakes

The social network calls it synthetic and manipulated media

Twitter will reveal a feedback period in the coming weeks

Twitter is seeking user input in crafting its policies on deepfakes, which it refers to as synthetic and manipulated media.

The social network said in a series of tweets that its new policy will address content that has been “significantly altered or created in a way that changes the original meaning/purpose, or makes it seem like certain events took place that didn’t actually happen.”

Twitter added that it will reveal a feedback period in the coming weeks so that its users can participate in the process.

The social network offered its reasons for the move:

  • We need to consider how synthetic media is shared on Twitter in potentially damaging contexts.
  • We want to listen and consider your perspectives in our policy development process.
  • We want to be transparent about our approach and values.
