To help promote informed discussion and reduce the 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 percent more often after seeing the prompt. Some people didn’t end up RTing after opening the article, which was fine for Twitter.
