Active Twitter users most likely to spread fake news: Study Washington Most active users on Twitter tend to spread fake news during public emergencies by retweeting or "liking" the original post, a study has found. The study published in the , journal Natural Hazards, examined four false rumours two each from the marathon and hurricane, including an infamous falsehood about the New York Stock Exchange flooding. Researchers examined three types of behaviour. Twitter users could either spread the false news, seek to confirm it, or cast doubt upon it. They found that 86 to 91 per cent of the users spread false news, either by retweeting or "liking" the original post. Only five to nine per cent sought to confirm the false news, typically by retweeting and asking if the information was correct, while just one to nine per cent expressed doubt, often by saying the original tweet was not accurate. "To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to investigate how apt Twitter users are at debunking falsehoods during disasters. Unfortunately the results paint , a less than flattering picture," said Jun Zhuang, associate professor at University at Buffalo in the US. dIal 100 data says Damsels in distress mostly on Sunday, Monday evenings Maximum calls received between 8 pm and 11 pm raJesh thaKur Bhopal Stepping out of house on Sundays and Mondays during evening hours give goosebumps to women in Madhya Pradesh.
