Elon Musk's X introduces 'Community Notes' feature in India

X introduced the feature that allows users to view community notes in December 2022

Social media platform X, formerly known as Twitter, has introduced its community notes feature in India. This initiative allows users to participate in monitoring tweets shared by other users and intermediaries on the platform.

X’s Community Notes handle tweeted: ‘Welcome new contributors to India. Our first contributors are joining today, and we’ll expand over time. As always, we monitor quality to ensure notes are found useful by people from different points of view. Community Notes now has contributors in 69 countries around the world, and we are adding more regularly.”

X owner Elon Musk reposted the tweet saying, “Community Notes now active in India!”

What are community notes?

According to The platform says it does not endorse any specific position, but instead relies on the collective input of contributors to determine the credibility of the content.

X says the effectiveness of community notes depends on the consensus reached by users with different perspectives. The platform identifies comments deemed helpful by users across the site by analyzing past reviews. This promotes transparency and accuracy by allowing the community to contribute to the verification process.

Users will now have the ability to flag misinformation and provide context to tweets, contributing to a more informed and responsible online environment.

When was Community Notes introduced?

X introduced the feature that allowed users to view community notes in December 2022, but initially limited access to messages to just a few countries. Over time, the platform has expanded this feature to include contributors from different countries, with the latest rollout extending to 69 countries. Last year, the company expanded the feature to include images and videos.

Despite its global expansion, India was one of the last major markets where X introduced community notes.
