October 1, 2020 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

As the nation continues to grapple with the pandemic, we’ve also had to manage a rising “infodemic,” an overabundance of misinformation about COVID-19. Recent Gallup/Knight research shows that a majority of Americans cite social media as a large reason for the infodemic. How are platforms handling and addressing this issue? On Episode 23 of “The Future of Democracy,” we’ll talk with Nick Pickles, global head of policy strategy and development at Twitter, about social media, the infodemic, and how to ensure Americans are armed with accurate information.
