One of the most unique things about working at Twitter is getting a firehose of instant feedback about everything we ship. People care a lot about Twitter and inevitably have strong opinions about the product.
Constructive Tweets about Community Notes (paired with proper user research) have been one of our sources of feedback for how to improve the product. The positive Tweets, meanwhile, are a source of motivation and testament to the impact the product has had. I've collected some of my favorites below.

Community notes is still so underrated pic.twitter.com/1Kvb8BTa1f— Peter Yang (@petergyang) June 30, 2023
Community Notes is legit one of the most interesting products the company has ever launched. You can kind of see how they are starting to be written w a bit more editorial voice and I’ll just be interested to see how that evolves.— Jason Goldman (@goldman) June 26, 2023
Mark Zuckerberg says he's a fan of Twitter's Community Notes:— KanekoaTheGreat (@KanekoaTheGreat) June 9, 2023
"I think a bunch of people would prefer to have a flag on something that says, hey, a fact checker thinks this is false. I think Twitter's community notes implementation is quite good on this." pic.twitter.com/8qqiebmfw7
One of the leading benefits I’m seeing to Community Notes seems to be for debunking when an image or video isn’t what the user posting it claims it is.— Yishan (@yishan) June 9, 2023
I really appreciate the community notes feature for this. Big improvement.— Vaibhav Gadodia (@whoisvaibhav) June 9, 2023
Now, if only WhatsApp would have something like this for forwards.
I really love the community notes. Its a great feature for this platform.— Nerd Wonder (@YourNerdWonder) June 9, 2023
God damn I love @CommunityNotes— Dave From Earth (@Daveonearth) May 24, 2023
When those on the right and the left are attacking and praising Community Notes all at the same time, it probably means that community notes are quite accurate and fair.— Brian Krassenstein (@krassenstein) May 20, 2023
People hate being community noted, and their first reaction before realizing that they were wrong is usually… pic.twitter.com/K0p0s0MVGu
has always baffled me that wikipedia works— t11s (@transmissions11) May 17, 2023
assumed that a very unique combination of events must have occurred for it to work in this timeline and it would not be reproducible today
yet twitter community notes came out recently and works fantastically as well
Why I love community notes:— Brian Krassenstein (@krassenstein) May 16, 2023
First of all, this tweet was seen over 1.5 million times. I have fact-checked tweets just like it a million times on my own but people continue to spread the same misinformation over and over again.
Community notes has an official feel to it,… pic.twitter.com/NxQXbVldbJ
I worked on the fact-checking side when I was at Facebook and @CommunityNotes puts their system to shame. Great to see an actual reliable solution to misinfo/disinfo on social media, especially at this scale.— Ian Haworth (@ighaworth) May 3, 2023
Community notes has the potential to be _the_ differentiating factor between twitter and all other socials. https://t.co/J2BGbUKCLb— Dave (@dae5id) April 27, 2023
Community Notes is a powerful feature. https://t.co/JjzN7F4V1K— Joshua Schoenaker (@JoshSchoen) April 27, 2023
As Notas da Comunidade foram uma puta sacada.— Vitesco 💀🚬 (@viteesco) April 24, 2023
Um programa descentralizado, que delega ao povo a incumbência que sempre foi dele: decidir por si mesmo no que acreditar, ao invés de delegar a uns poucos jornalistas o poder de decidir a verdade.
Como diz o Grimas: O Musk pôs no cu…
I must admit, I'm astounded by how well "crowdsourced Twitter fact-checking" has turned out— 🎀 sonya supposedly 🤖 (@sonyasupposedly) April 21, 2023
Really helpful context added to the bottom of this tweet, @twitter. Twitter has been providing this Birdwatch feature since March, but this is the first time I've actually seen a tweet in my thread with one of the Birdwatch notes on it. pic.twitter.com/o1BG4pdK2n— Kim Zetter (@KimZetter) October 16, 2022
the ‘readers added context’ section is the best thing they’ve added to twitter. people just love to spout nonsense on this website— stealthnacho🔮 (@stealthnacho) October 19, 2022
Missed Musk got tagged by Birdwatch. It's a quality note too, I think a person really interested in non-sanctioning approaches to misinformation would be excited to see its possible promise but I am guessing he's not. pic.twitter.com/Ec39xO0RUm— Mike Caulfield (@holden) July 6, 2022
Community notes have been so fucking cool. https://t.co/rgHWuCiCq3— 'Whack' with a silent H ☀️ (@WhackNicholson) April 17, 2023
This "readers added context" feature - and how prominently it is displayed - is honestly one of the best things Twitter has ever done. As with most things on Twitter, I'd like to see it applied a bit more consistently, but it's a good thing. pic.twitter.com/0hr3AXRe1d— Alioth Fox (Hi Gay, I'm Dad) 🔞 (@AliothFox) October 20, 2022
