Sharing an article can spark conversation, so you may want to read it before you Tweet it.— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) June 10, 2020
To help promote informed discussion, we're testing a new prompt on Android –– when you Retweet an article that you haven't opened on Twitter, we may ask if you'd like to open it first.
- Only certain Twitter users on Android devices will be affected by this test for now.
- This self-described "experiment" aims to "improve the health of a conversation as it gets started" as well as to "see if reminding people to read an article before they share it leads to more informed discussion."
- As always with these brand new features, you can just ignore the prompt and "go ahead and Retweet."
