The initial tweet used as an example read, “Not all college athletes will become rich just because they can now sign endorsement deals and make money from their NIL.”

A defendant then responds, “Probably not, but at least they have the opportunity to ultimately gain some financial benefit from the physical and mental sacrifice. These deals will certainly affect how coaches recruit and how committed players are.” Mo rules, mo problems.”

Between those two messages, a bold alert from Twitter says, “Heads up,” warning, “a conversation like this can get intense.”

A second phone alert shows another notification that pops up and covers everyone except the initial tweet and says, “Let’s watch out for a second.”

The alert then asks users to “remember the human,” adding that “communication with respect makes Twitter better.” It then says that “facts matter,” adding that “checking the facts helps everyone.”

In response to the post, a wave of users sought Twitter’s support for help on the locked and suspended accounts. Others criticized Twitter’s new “alert” alert.

“Honestly, do you guys who work at Twitter ever actually use Twitter?” One person tweeted. “The stuff you come up with like this is always so random and bizarre. It’s never what nobody wants (an edit button) and never a solution to anything.”

Another wrote, “This is the Internet, conversations about corn dogs can get intense.”

Someone else asked, “I think this is generally a good idea. What metrics would be used to determine the ‘heated’ convo?”

Twitter Support responded, “The criteria we use to determine which conversations will show this signal may change as we learn from this test. We’re talking about the relationship between the Tweet subject and the Tweet author and responder.” relationship. This is a preliminary test, so we can’t fix it every time.”

He noted that “some examples of signals we can consider include tweet subject and the relationship between tweet author and respondent.”
