X community adds a context note to Slate post: The Slate X account posted a link to an article on its site titled "Clarence Thomas' Opinion Legalizing Bump Stocks Is Indefensible." The post included text that read "Thomas' majority opinion reads like the fevered work of a gun fetishist, complete with diagrams and even a GIF." The X community added a note to the post that read: "Readers added context they thought people might want to know. The opinion interprets 26 USC § 5845, a law that defines a 'machinegun' as shooting 'automatically more than one shot' 'by a single function of the trigger.' It included illustrations of the AR-15 trigger mechanism to demonstrate what 'a single function of the trigger' meant. supremecourt.gov/opinions/23pdf…" The label is part of X’s Community Notes system. X users are able to sign up as contributors to add context to posts. X owner Elon Musk shared that any post with a Community Note added to it will be demonetized. The Community Notes account on X also posted that notices will be pushed to users who previously engaged with a post when a Community Note is added to it later.
