Twitter is reportedly developing a trio of misinformation warning labels, according to app researcher Jane Manchun Wong.
Based on a screenshot Wong tweeted on Monday, the tiered system appears to change depending on the individual post’s accuracy—from “Get the latest” (blue) to “Stay informed” (orange) to “Misleading” (pink). Each label features a prompt directing viewers to “Find out more” about the tweeted topic.

Wong, who is known for uncovering hidden features in apps and online services, experimented with the new system, tweeting things like “Snorted 60 grams of dihydrogen monoxide and I’m not feeling so well now,” which generated a “Get the latest” label with more details on water.
