To help promote informed discussion and reduce spread of fake, harmful content, Twitter will very soon launch a new prompt on Android for the users to open and read the article first before retweeting. After a small experiment with a set of users, Twitter found that people open articles 40 per cent more often after seeing the prompt. People opening articles before RTing increased by 33%, the company said in a tweet on Thursday.
