Twitter Chalking Out Policy To Combat Deepfake Videos

16

San Francisco: In a new development, Twitter is currently working on a new policy to tackle deep fake videos on its platform.

As per reports, the new feature will address the content which could threaten someone’s physical safety or lead to offline harm.

The micro-blogging platform has asked its users how best the synthetic and manipulated videos can be addressed.

“Deepfakes” are video forgeries that make people appear to be saying things they never did, like the popular forged videos of Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that went viral recently.

“We’re always updating our rules based on how online behaviours change. We’re working on a new policy to address synthetic and manipulated media on Twitter, but first we want to hear from you,’ Twitter said on Monday.
