Twitter kicked off a pilot in Brazil last year with global news agency AFP to help elevate credible news and information in Portuguese, and the social network said Thursday that it is expanding the scope of that partnership to cover Spanish-language content curation in Latin America Spain and the U.S.

The company has similar curation initiatives in place with The Associated Press and Reuters, aimed at combating misinformation on its platform.

Content curated by AFP Checamos for Portuguese and AFP Factual for Spanish appears in the form of Moments in various areas on Twitter, including the Explore tab, prompts, search, Trends and tweet labels.

The social network will also continue publishing debunks that are relevant to the main misleading narratives that are circulating on its platform, saying in a blog post Thursday that more than 9 million people encounter at least one of these debunks each day.
