Help us curb the spread of misinformation in social media! In this job, you'll help us track who is spreading misinformation. However, instead of just passively keeping track of these users, you will help us actively implement an experiment where we strategically engage in conversation with these users in an effort to promote healthier conversations.

Job qualifications

  • Must be fluent in social media (i.e., be highly familiar with Twitter conversational styles, norms, platform features, etc.)
  • Must be available for at least 5 hours a week
  • Interest in political and vaccine misinformation is a plus
