Twitter Adds Covid-19 Vaccine Information Prompt On Users’ Timelines

Twitter Adds Covid-19 Vaccine Information Prompt On Users’ Timelines

In a bid to help people access the right information, Twitter has added a new prompt in the timelines of users to help them get correct  Covid-19 vaccination information in their respective countries including India.

The new prompt appears at the top of users’ Twitter feeds for both iOS and Android users.

“As COVID-19 vaccinations become more widely available, we want you to have access to the latest vaccine info in your country,” Twitter said in a tweet on Monday.

“This week you’ll see a prompt in your timeline that links to sources about vaccine safety, efficacy, and news from public health experts,” the company added.

Clicking on the link will take you to the information page prepared with the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare in India, and organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US.

Facebook has recently added state-by-state vaccination information to its News Feed for US users.

In an effort to help 50 million people get Covid-19 vaccines, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg last month announced new tools, along with expanding efforts to address Covid-19 vaccine misinformation by adding labels to Facebook and Instagram posts that discuss the vaccines.

One of the new tools announced by the company shows you when and where you can get vaccinated, and gives you a link to make an appointment in the US.
