Twitter warns users if they want to like a post that has been judged to be misleading.

The company announced this in a tweet on its platform on Tuesday.

The warning appears if the user likes a potentially misleading message.

Twitter then shows again in an additional window that the content of the message is disputed.

The warning will be available on iOS and the web version of Twitter starting this week.

The Twitter app will follow on Android in the coming weeks.

Twitter began warning of tweets containing misleading information in the run-up to this year's US presidential election.

For example, a number of Donald Trump's tweets were labeled because they contained information that was doubtful.

Twitter also warned users if they wanted to share a message that was marked as incorrect. This warning served as an extra barrier to retweet such messages. According to Twitter, the warnings have resulted in a 29 percent decrease in misleading messages.
