    X Not To Monetize Posts Corrected By Community Notes

    Posted in

    To incentivize accuracy over sensationalism, X has announced the demonetization of the posts corrected by Community Notes.

    This means that creators will not be able to earn money from the ads on the posts that other users have corrected.

    Community Notes is a collaborative, crowdsourced fact-checking system that helps add context to Tweets & provide feedback on their accuracy.

    When Community Notes corrects a post, the correction is displayed publicly, and the post receives a label indicating that the post is corrected.

    X owner Elon Musk made this announcement soon after the warning by independent researchers that X has now become a central hub for misinformation.

    Musk said this new policy is to “maximize the incentive for accuracy over sensationalism.” He has also said that any attempts to “weaponize” Community Notes to demonetize people will be immediately obvious because all code and data is open source.

    The change

    was criticized by some of the users, saying that the program is used for other purposes than just correcting the incorrect information.

    Some users found the idea good, as they found a lot of community notes are entirely false.

    Potential Impact of the New Policy

    The new policy has the potential to impact creators in several ways:

    It could incentivize creators to be more accurate and thoughtful in their posts.

    On the other hand, it could also discourage creators from posting on controversial or sensitive topics for fear of having their posts corrected & demonetized.

    The policy could also have a broader impact on the X community and the platform’s overall content ecosystem.

    By demonetizing posts corrected by Community Notes, X is sending a clear message that it is committed to promoting accuracy & combating misinformation on the platform. This could lead to a more informed and engaged X community.

    The new policy is a significant change to X’s monetization system, and it remains to be seen how it will impact the platform and its users. However, X is committed to using Community Notes to improve the accuracy & quality of content on the platform.
