Twitter to let some employees work from home permanently
CALIFORNIA: Twitter announced a strategy for curbing the spread of fake imagery like “deep-fake” videos as part of a move to counter misinformation that could lead to violence or other damages.
The initiative was revealed after Twitter last year called for feedback on ways to reduce “synthetic and distorted information” on the online platform that could deceive people or cause violence or physical harm, particularly during election campaigns.

Twitter, which has been working with other social platforms to respond to disinformation issues, said its new policy calls for a combination of warning “labels” on tweets that include distorted images or video, and removal of such tweets.
The move comes in the early stages of growing concerns about “deep-fake” videos that have been altered using artificial intelligence, along with other manipulations to deceive users on social media.
