Twitter Shares New Insights into How Users are Planning for the Post-Pandemic Future [Infographic]



The challenges of 2020 put many things on hold, with all of us pausing long-term plans, including holidays, promotions, major purchases, etc., in order to get through the worst of the pandemic, in the hopes that things will improve, and we can return to a level of normalcy.

Of course, we don’t know when that return will be, with many things elements up in the air. The vaccine roll-out is now in full swing, but it could take years to be fully implemented. Offices are now re-opening, but many are still hesitant to come back full-time. Sporting events and in-real-life functions are now allowing some fans and patrons.

It remains a difficult and transitional time in many respects, but according to a new study conducted by Twitter, optimism, at least among Twitter users, is on the rise.

Twitter surveyed more than 1000 people to get their insights into how they’re planning for the future, and found that Twitter users are increasingly now looking forward to ‘milestone moments’, like buying a new car or starting a family.

As per Twitter:

“People on Twitter are feeling better about their future and are ready to start thinking about big life moments again. And that means they’re reappraising which financial services providers will help them tackle these new challenges, making now the perfect time for brands to join the finance conversation on Twitter.”

The data also shows that Twitter users are more likely to reevaluate their financial services providers more than people not on the platform, some valuable insight for those in the sector.

Twitter adds warning labels to false Ukraine war posts

Twitter on Thursday said it will put warning labels on demonstrably false posts about Russia’s war in Ukraine under a new “crisis misinformation policy.”

Tweets violating the new rule will be hidden behind messages saying that misleading information in the posts could cause real-world harm, said Twitter head of safety and integrity Yoel Roth.

Twitter users will then have to click on a link to see an offending post.

“While this first iteration is focused on international armed conflict, starting with the war in Ukraine, we plan to update and expand the policy to include additional forms of crisis,” Roth said in a blog post.

Examples of the kinds of posts that would merit warning labels included false reports about what is happening on the ground and how the international community is responding.

Twitter said it will make a priority of adding warning labels to tweets from high-profile accounts such as state-affiliated media outlets, governments, and users whose identities have been verified.


“Conversation moves quickly during periods of crisis, and content from accounts with wide reach are most likely to rack up views and engagement,” Roth said.

He added that the new policy will guide Twitter’s efforts “to elevate credible, authoritative information, and will help to ensure viral misinformation isn’t amplified or recommended by us during crises.”

The content moderation move comes as Twitter faces the prospect of being bought by billionaire Elon Musk.
