Twitter to (gently) shame you if you retweet without reading

According to this article, 83% of people share articles based on their headlines or on what people say about them, without actually reading them.

And Twitter knows! The next time you try retweeting a tweet containing a link to an article you never opened, you will see a pop up from Twitter asking you in the most (gentle) passive-aggressive way if you’d rather take a look at it first.

We obviously back this decision!
