The New York Times published a report on Wednesday claiming to have discovered a new way to get your Twitter feeds to look like the real thing.
The article claims to have found a way to make your Twitter account appear more like a real newsfeed and even the real news in the same tweet, which has the same format and headline as a real article.
The NYT says the process involves creating an account with a fake Twitter handle, and using a Google-powered API to query and search the real account’s feed for articles and articles.
The real articles are then published on the real Twitter feed, and the fake articles are hidden behind a “fake news” banner.
The newsfeed itself has been modified to look more like the article you’re reading.
Twitter is currently blocking the fake news from appearing in the real feed, but if the NYT has the API, it could be used to make the fake tweets appear in the feed.
This would be a major improvement over the current system, which seems to have a lot of restrictions on what can be shown and how, and it would also eliminate the ability to filter tweets by content, which makes the current newsfeed system a bit clunky.
Twitter has yet to comment on the article.
