The Birdwatch pilot program began in January 2021 and was available to users in the United States who registered for the program. However, in the early pilot programs, Birdwatch notes were not displayed in tweets, but the notes could only be viewed on a dedicated website.

And on June 2nd, it was announced that Birdwatch notes will be displayed in tweets on Android, iOS, and browser versions for users who will finally participate in the Birdwatch pilot program. Due to the new changes, users participating in the Birdwatch pilot program may see Birdwatch notes in their tweets as follows:

Birdwatch notes are rated by other users, and notes that are rated as 'currently helpful' are displayed with the tweet. If multiple memos are 'currently evaluated as helpful', the memos displayed at regular intervals will be rotated.

Also, if none of the notes attached to the tweet are 'currently rated as helpful', a card showing only the number of written notes will be displayed, and the user will tap the card. You can read all the notes.

If all the notes are 'currently rated as unhelpful', the notes will not be displayed in the tweet, and you can see the notes by tapping the Birdwatch icon in the details of the tweet.
