Twitter adds a COVID-19 vaccine fact box to users’ timelines
With the current situattion, Twitter is adding a new prompt to users’ timelines to help promote the ongoing COVID-19 vaccination effort, providing users around the world with the “latest vaccine info” in their particular country.
As COVID-19 vaccinations become more widely available, we want you to have access to the latest vaccine info in your country.— Twitter Support (@TwitterSupport) April 26, 2021
This week you’ll see a prompt in your timeline that links to sources about vaccine safety, efficacy, and news from public health experts.
This link takes you to a new Twitter event page with information about the vaccines, shown as a series of collected tweets from organizations like the World Health Organization (WHO) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), at least in the US. The guide is broken up into several sections, into details on vaccine efficacy, potential side effects, advice for pregnant people, and more.
