The feature was first launched during the 2018 U.S. midterms, where the labels were seen 100 million times per day by Twitter users in the week before Election Day.

Consider his remarks at a US Securities and Exchange Commission event last week. Mr Cohn started by pointing out that, in America, “the consumer part of the economy looks pretty good.” Quite so: the so-called “consumer comfort” index (a sentiment and financial indicators indicator) has been running above 60 per cent, a near historic high.
Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey is funding research aimed at changing the way information circulates on social media -- with the goal of combating online violence, hate and disinformation.

The first thing to know about the African grey parrot is that it is not entirely grey. Unfortunately for the African grey, these are the least of the species’ problems. A highly intelligent animal capable of mimicking human speech and which can live in captivity up to the age of 60, it has also been a sought-after pet since biblical times.
On the eve of the battle of Agincourt, Shakespeare has King Henry V walking unrecognised among his troops where he hears some harsh words. When he provocatively says that he would be happy to die for the king because the cause is just, one soldier, Michael Williams, tells him “that’s more than we know” and that, for those who die, “it will be a black matter for the king that led them to it”. Chief executives today, and monarchs for that matter, are too photographed and filmed to circulate incognito which means they don’t often find out what their staff think of them or the business.

The political space between Boris Johnson’s Conservatives and Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour has rarely been greater, yet hopes of a Liberal Democrat-led centrist revival fade with each new poll.
