Twitter said it would add more context to topics that trend on its service, an effort to clean up features that have often been used to amplify hate and disinformation.

The change comes as Twitter and other social media companies struggle to respond to the US presidential election’s disinformation. But it stops short of a solution that some Twitter employees and external activists have proposed: eradicating Trending Topics.

Twitter offers trends as a way for users to identify which topics are most popular. But the system has often been gamed by bots and internet trolls to spread false, hateful, or misleading information.
