Twitter slows retweets ahead of election to tackle misinformation

Twitter is making it difficult for tweets to go viral ahead of election in order to tackle the spread of misinformation. Commencing Friday and carrying on through the election, users who click the retweet button will be directed to a screen where they can add commentary to their retweet. Although users can skip the commentary, but they would have to complete extra steps to finalize the retweet.

This doesn't seem like it'll do much, it just adds an extra step that takes 0.5 seconds to click through. This helps how?
