Twitter’s new proposal, set out in a blog post, saying that it is possible to place a notice, in addition to the tweets, the parts ‘ of man which is manipulated by the media, should warn the people for them to like or share the like post tweets, or add a link to a news article to show that various sources believe that the media is synthetic or has been tampered with.

The company also said that it might be the removal of the tweets to such media when they are misleading, and are likely to threaten the physical safety or cause other serious damage.

The proposed new definition of synthetic and manipulated by the media, such as pictures, audio, and video, which has been significantly modified, or constructed in a way that intends to deceive people, or changes of its original meaning.” It would have been deepfakes, or have been changed “shallowfakes.”

Twitter, last year, banned deepfakes in the context of an intimate medium: it is the policy doesn’t allow pictures or videos to the digital manipulation of a person’s face onto another person’s nude body.

While there is not yet a well-made deepfake video with huge political consequences in the United States, with the potential to be manipulated the video to be the cause of unrest was shown in a clip from the House of representatives, Nancy Pelosi, manual, delayed and her speech seems to be unclear.

After the Pelosi video, and Facebook Inc’s (FB.(O) the Chief Executive, Mark Zuckerberg, was portrayed in a spoof video on Instagram in which he appears to be saying, “he who controls the information, controls the future.” Facebook, which owns Instagram, did not take the video.
