VIDEO: AI-generated photo showed a fake explosion near the US Pentagon

Earlier today an apparent AI-generated photo showed a fake explosion near the US Pentagon. The news was shared by Russian state-media RT on Twitter, which helped it go viral.

It was also tweeted by a verified Twitter account called “BloombegFeed” which has now been suspended.

This is how misinformation spreads.  

I'm glad to see that RT removed the tweet and Twitter suspended the verified account called "BloombergFeed," but this shouldn't have happened in the first place.

I do think Twitter needs to try and take more caution on verifying accounts like this. I think that if you are going to put an organization's name in your Twitter handle you should have to be part of that organization, and that should be verified.

With AI growing rapidly, this will just become more of a problem. What else can be done to prevent this from happening again? I'd love to hear your thoughts.

THE FACTS: Police and fire officials in Arlington, Virginia, say the image is not real and there was no incident at the U.S. Department of Defense headquarters across the Potomac from the nation’s capital.

Despite this, the image and claim was spread by outlets including RT, a Russian government-backed media company formerly known as Russia Today. It was also widely shared in investment circles, including an account bearing Twitter’s signature blue verification check mark that falsely suggested it was associated with Bloomberg News.
