The man who is the creator of Twitter’s “retweet” button believes that it will be a very bad idea.

In an interview with BuzzFeed News, developer Chris Wetherell said that he recalls thinking, ” can We have just completed a 4-year-old with a loaded gun.”

The retweet function has been a major part of Twiter, which is responsible for the sparks that are necessary to make a wide variety of topics, but is also responsible for the spread of misinformation, and is being taken advantage of by bad actors, such as Russia.

Prior to retweet, users had to copy and paste it into a new tweet, so they have a bit more time to decide on the tone, structure, and content. After that, things changed.

Wetherell, told BuzzFeed News that Twitter staff members were not prepared for, at the most, it would dramatically change the ownership on the platform.

“More than two or three times and have to ask someone to take a wider and more interesting social question, which was,” What is shared?'” Wetherell said. “It almost never came up.”

Misinformation, whether spread by the Russian and / or ordinary Americans, but is spreading a lot faster, thanks to features like the retweet button.

For its part, the tech company has said that it is considering a wide range of measures to make the space better for your health.”
