INTRODUCTION OF VALIDITY
VALIDITY ON TWITTER
The introduction of ‘validity’, was roughly initially by Twitter. Twitter took the throne from Facebook in social validation through one simple blue check mark (Which Facebook, and pretty much all other websites would soon replicate); the ‘Verified’ icon. Up until Twitter’s renovation, we relied upon rumors and mutable feedback to capture virtual validation.

FIGHTING FAKE NEWS
HOW THE BIGGEST TECH COMPANIES ARE WORKING TO FIGHT FAKE NEWS
Twitter is testing an icon designed to label tweets that start a thread. Called an “Original Tweeter” icon, the label is intended to notify users that a fake account impersonating the original tweeter during a conversation thread is illegitimate.
China’s WeChat, which is owned by Tencent and has more than a billion users, recently partnered with 774 third-party organizations to provide users with more than 4,000 articles that debunk fake news reports. WeChat also posts a top-ten list of the most popular false rumors. It flags fake news articles. It also bans content and blocks links on the service.
