Rating notes

There are two ways to find Tweets with Birdwatch notes in order to rate their quality:

Rating notes on the Birdwatch site

Go to the Birdwatch Site’s Home page and choose any Tweet to see notes that participants have added to it. There are three main timelines on this page:

  • Needs your help: Contains Tweets with notes where you can have the most impact when rating. This tab is only visible to pilot participants.

  • New: Contains Tweets with the most recent notes.

  • Rated Helpful: Contains Tweets with at least one note rated helpful by the community.

You can learn more about how Birdwatch chooses notes for each of these views on the Note Ranking page of the Guide.

Rating notes on Twitter

If you’re a Birdwatch pilot participant, you may also see notes on Tweets while browsing Twitter. You can tap to rate those notes:

Helpfulness status on notes

Birdwatch initially shows most recent notes on top, and displays them with a status indicator that the note Needs More Ratings. In some cases — if notes have received enough ratings from other contributors, and certain criteria are met — notes might be moved to the top or bottom of the list and annotated with a header showing that they are Currently Rated Helpful or Currently Not Rated Helpful.

When notes are Currently Rated Helpful or Currently Not Rated Helpful, Birdwatch will also show the top two “reasons” selected by raters when rating that note.

Helpfulness ratings on your notes

You can see how other participants have rated your notes on the Your Notes page, which shows an aggregate score of ratings you’ve received across all notes you’ve written.
