From Oct 29 to Oct 31, there is a 'misinformation hunt' organised by #EUNOMIA where an unspecified number of additional misinformation as well as credible posts are being added to mastodon.eunomia.social.
If you wish to see how good you are at spotting misinformation, it will be great to see you on the pilot instance over these three days!
Learn more about the pilot on the official Mastodon blog:
The EUNOMIA pilot is in full effect for the Blasting News community. Read more about it here:
A separate pilot for the Mastodon community will be available in the future!
It's worrying that Mastodon is susceptible to misinformation, since there is no way either moderators can keep up with so many posts or a decentralized AI system let small players be part of the platform. That's why I really hope @Eunomia 's work, if shown effective, gets integrated into @Mastodon. Users —with the guide of an interface letting us calm down, assess sources, and generally assess knowledge—, through distributed work via flagging or whatever, are the solution.
