X Lowers Threshold For ‘Newsworthy’ Posts

X has made a serious change to what it considers “newsworthy” posts, doubtlessly opening the door to far more misinformation.

Previously, X (and Twitter) required an account to have not less than 100,000 followers for its posts to be thought of newsworthy. Accounts additionally needed to be verified.

Based on TechCrunch, X has eliminated the limitation of 100,000 followers. What’s extra, since anybody can now pay to have a verified account that threshold not has any actual that means.

The corporate’s new coverage says an account should merely be “a high-profile account.” Sadly, the up to date coverage supplies no data on what constitutes “a high-profile account.”
