The aim of this task is to determine whether a claim in a tweet is worth fact-checking. Typical approaches to make that decision require to either resort to the judgments of professional fact-checkers or to human annotators to answer several auxiliary questions such as “does it contain a verifiable factual claim?”, and “is it harmful?”, before deciding on the final check-worthiness label.
This year we offer two kinds of data, which translate to two subtasks:
- Subtask 1A (Multimodal): The tweets to be judged include both a text snippet and an image.
- Subtask 1B (Unimodal - Text): The tweets to be judged contain only text.
Subtask 1A is offered in Arabic and English, whereas Subtask 1B is offered in Arabic, English and Spanish.
