A letter from Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey

Twitter is an amazing platform for communication that has literally changed the world. But in order for it to work right, people can’t get sucked into all the fake news and conspiracy theories so many of our users (especially Russian bots) post.

That’s why we’re very excited to announce the launch of our new #dontbelieveeverytweet campaign. It’s a simple reminder to be skeptical of everything you see on Twitter because our users can put literally anything in a tweet.

We hope you’ll take the time to sign our pledge not to believe every tweet in your feed and share the #dontbelieveeverytweet commercials with your friends (on Twitter of course). We’re also going to start airing on FOX News in the next few days because duh.

Thanks.

I, the undersigned, pledge to be skeptical of all claims and never assume something is true just because it appears to reinforce views I already hold.

I will not believe every tweet.
