The product we built, Twitter Moments, prioritizes trustworthiness and quality, and for the most part delivers fake-news-free content — both banal and serious — using skilled human moderators in a scalable fashion. Most social networks choose engagement: a combination of actions taken by users to share or favorite a post, the time/intensity they spent interacting with the content, and, for ads, how much the advertiser is willing to pay. Machine learning algorithms care ONLY about components of their objective functions: They will automatically and blindly maximize the time people spend engaging with content, indifferent to whether that means showing a user mendacious foreign propaganda or the latest peer-reviewed scientific paper. Madhu Muthukumar, the product manager at the time, researched the number and scope of articles published by newspapers each day (it's around 1,000 each) to figure out how much curation work could have plausibly been done by a team of human editors. Additionally, human curators should be tapped to review posts when they begin to spread within the network, when the algorithm lacks confidence, or based on user-generated signals that the content is suspicious or fake.

Machine learning models combine with human nature to produce bad second order effects. People like engaging with salacious content, and tend to believe it’s true when presented with strong social proof. Over time, a recommendations system using a truth-agnostic ranking algorithm, if given a large number of users and an endless supply of cheap content, will create a system that is easily exploited to spread fake news and radicalize many of its users.
