The label, which was announced as part of a new policy last month, is designed to apply to media that has been “significantly and deceptively altered or fabricated.”

Per Twitter's Help Center

1. Is the content synthetic or manipulated?

In order for content to be labeled or removed under this policy, we must have reason to believe that media, or the context in which media are presented, are significantly and deceptively altered or manipulated.

2. Is the content shared in a deceptive manner?

We also consider whether the context in which media are shared could result in confusion or misunderstanding or suggests a deliberate intent to deceive people about the nature or origin of the content, for example by falsely claiming that it depicts reality.

3. Is the content likely to impact public safety or cause serious harm?

Tweets that share synthetic and manipulated media are subject to removal under this policy if they are likely to cause serious harm.

Labeling and removal

In most cases, if we have reason to believe that media shared in a Tweet have been significantly and deceptively altered or fabricated, we will provide additional context on Tweets sharing the media where they appear on Twitter. This means we may:

  • Apply a label to the content where it appears in the Twitter product;

  • Show a warning to people before they share or like the content;

  • Reduce the visibility of the content on Twitter and/or prevent it from being recommended; and/or

  • Provide a link to additional explanations or clarifications, such as in a Twitter Moment or landing page.
