To address the challenge of disinformation, as part of the Media Futures program Polltix will build a widget that will enable media outlets to poll their readers directly on their website and get representative results. The widget will also feature a disinformation index which will show the extent to which the public opinion had been affected by disinformation.
This innovation will empower the media to produce more content addressing the most impactful disinformation narratives contributing to an increase in the public’s resilience to disinformation.
Polltix is a Lithuanian civic tech start-up that makes representative democracies more representative. We do that through our proprietary digital platform that facilitates direct and simple public consultations between the public sector and the citizens.
