Twitter to label personal accounts of heads of State

Even as a political storm over Twitter rages on in India, the social media platform has announced that it would start adding labels to identify more State-linked accounts, including world leaders’ personal accounts, to give users more context for geopolitical conversations on it.

“Our primary motivation is to give people on Twitter, wherever in the world they are, more context about the tweets they’re seeing, rather than about changing the way governments behave,” Nick Pickles, Twitter’s global director of public policy strategy and development, was quoted as saying.
