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.
