Last week, Twitter released a preliminary look at how their election-year anti-misinformation measures had worked. The verdict? Well enough that they're keeping some, ditching others — and expanding at least one.
Twitter applied labels to, and in a few cases even masked, tweets containing disputed info about the election or voting — including Donald Trump's repeated attacks on mail-in ballots and the count that eventually saw him declared the loser. If a user went to retweet a labeled tweet, a prompt would pop up with a link to more information, and an additional warning that the info in the tweet is disputed.

Welcome to No Shame November! This week we're diving into the pop culture we love that society tells us we shouldn't.
In NBC’s fantastic afterlife comedy The Good Place, chronic worrier Chidi Anagonye describes his anxious interior monologue as “the sound a fork makes in a garbage disposal.” That noise – grating, inescapable, wrong — is what my brain sounds like too. I have the superpowered combo of anxiety and ADHD, both of which work together to spin my racing thoughts into an intrusive tornado that almost never blows away.
One of the other symptoms of my ADHD is hyperfocus, an involuntary state of mind that kicks in when I’m totally engrossed in something. When I’m hyperfocused on a jigsaw puzzle, a book, a Wikipedia black hole, or anything else that grabs my attention, the rest of the world may as well not exist. I’ll miss notifications, forget to eat, and generally stay rooted in my spot of interest until I’m jolted away from it by something big enough to move my brain along.
