X verified accounts seemed to get away with more misinformation, a new study found.

ProPublica and Columbia University identified over 2,200 false or misleading posts from more than 1,300 verified accounts in the month following the Israel-Hamas war’s beginning, garnering half a billion impressions.

About 80% of the 2,000 debunked [image or video] posts we reviewed had no Community Note. Of the 200 debunked claims, more than 80 were never clarified with a note.

The study follows similar reports from NewsGuard in October and November. Many of the posts shown in ProPublica came after Community Notes improvements X announced in October.
