SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Twitter has signed deals with The Associated Press and Reuters to help elevate accurate information on its platform.

Twitter said Monday that the program will expand its existing work to help explain why certain subjects are trending on the site, to show information and news from trusted resources and to debunk misinformation.

Twitter said the news agencies will help ensure that credible information is available in real-time around key conversations as they come up in real-time, especially "where facts are in dispute" or when the company's internal team doesn't have the necessary expertise or access to enough reputable reporting.
