The reporter found that the relevant state affiliated media label appeared on the personal data page of such accounts, as well as on each tweet sent and shared, with patterns: the national flag represents the government account, and the small icon on the podium represents the official media. At present, Chinese and Russian media are mainly involved in China Recruitment, including peoples daily, Xinhuanet, CCTV, global times, global television news network (cgtn) and Caixin, as well as accounts of TASS, Russia today and satellite news agency.

In addition, for example, the accounts of some Chinese ambassadors to foreign countries and the offices of the spokesperson of the Ministry of foreign affairs are also labeled with government account number. Ironically, the ipanda broadcast account, which is co operated by cctv.com and Chengdu Research Base of giant panda breeding, has been labeled as state affiliated media by twitter. In contrast, President trump of the United States, his rarely used official accounts of the president are labeled, but the personal accounts frequently used in reality are not affected, which makes people question the criteria of twitter.

Basically, only the official account number of the president of the United States that is forwarded is also marked

Twitter gives a rather connotative explanation for the decision to label, that is, the accounts frequently push a political agenda through news coverage..

We believe that people have the right to know whether a media account is directly or indirectly subordinate to a national role. Once tagged, twitter will restrict the promotion of its content, and will not actively recommend these accounts or tweets to users during message reminders and searches.

At present, this rule is first applied to the relevant accounts of the five permanent members of the UN Security Council, and twitter plans to extend it to more countries in the future. However, many foreign netizens have already seen through its double label: only Chinese and Russian media accounts have been targeted at Wuchang, while a number of accounts in the United States, Britain and France have nothing happened.

Among them, those directly named include: the budget provided by the US Congress, the jurisdiction of voice of America and radio freedom Asia / Europe by the United States International News Agency; the Radio France Internationale of the French state-owned international broadcasting company; and the British Broadcasting Company (BBC), which was funded by the British Foreign Office and charged users based on legislation.

Foreign netizens question Twitters double label

In response, twitter forcibly explained that the so-called media with public funding and editorial independence will not be labeled, citing the BBC and NPR as examples.

But soon some people put up the fact of slapping in the face.. Unlike twitter, youtube, an American video sharing website, stipulated in 2018 that in order to increase the transparency of news sources, videos funded by public or government funds will be labeled, including BBC and voice of America.

BBC is labeled British public broadcasting agency by Youtube, while voice of America is wholly or partly funded by the US government

As for the double label of twitter, some netizens think that this is specifically aimed at China, Russia and other US rivals, and ironically: compared with the label of national media, some western media should be labeled controlled by Billionaires. According to the standard of promoting the political agenda, Fox News, as a trump media, is regarded as the official mouthpiece of the United States.
