Twitter fact-checks its very own manager Elon Musk for 'Dune' quote
New Twitter CEO and owner Elon Musk was fact-checked by his very own system on November 22, 2022.
This was after he wrongly attributed a quote to the science fiction legendary 'Dune'.
"Fanaticism is always a function of quelched uncertainty," Musk tweeted, connecting the claiming to 'Dune'.
Twitter customers promptly pointed out that the quote is by Swiss psychoanalyst Carl Jung.
The reality check can be found in the form of Twitter's brand-new Community Notes function.
The new attribute intends to create a better-informed globe by adding context to possibly misleading Tweets.
Musk touted the just recently introduced feature as an overhauled version of Twitter's pilot program 'Birdwatch'.
The function flags effective individuals consisting of a tweet by the White House that improperly credited President Biden for boosting Social Security repayments.
Elon Musk has a net worth of $204 billion as well as he bought Twitter in October 2022 for $44 billion.
