Hello @jack, a request from a journalist who covers protest: to help prevent the spread of disinformation, would @Twitter stop allowing blocked accounts to retweet videos?
There are some accounts that masquerade as journalists, some with more followers than most local papers, they can cause real confusion and panic when they spread disinformation and use our videos to seem like their reporting on the ground
Blocked accounts are already unable to like, retweet, or quote retweet; but there’s that iPhone function that let blocked accounts retweet videos and make it look like it’s their own.
Like this video, tweeted from a blocked account
