Abstract

Liberal and conservative participants rated the trustworthiness of several tweets that were created based on common misinformation techniques. Participants were more likely to rate misinformation as trustworthy if its source and content aligned with their political beliefs, but other individual differences (e.g., numeracy, cognitive flexibility) were unrelated to trustworthiness ratings.
