Widely shared Social media thread, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey stood by last week’s decision to ban President Trump from his company’s platform on Wednesday, noting that he “does not celebrate or feel proud,” but something that is “physical. “Security Threat” based off Twitter. ”
Dorsey said it was a “right decision” in his post on Wednesday.
“We faced an extraordinary and volatile situation, forcing us to focus all our actions on public safety,” he said. “Offline loss as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and that lifts our policy and enforcement.”
However, Dorsey said, banning accounts “has a real and significant impact.”
“While there are clear and unambiguous exceptions, I think the ban is a failure for us to ultimately promote healthy interactions … after these actions fragment public conversation. They divide us. They clarify, redemption, and Limit the potential for. Learning. And set an example that I think is dangerous: an individual or corporation has a part in global public interaction. “
He also said that Twitter is a small part of a big conversation on the Internet.
Dorsey said that if people don’t agree with the rules of one platform and enforce those rules, “they can simply go to another service.” But this potential is limited when the events of the past week appear, when several social media sites, seemingly unofficially, accused Mr. Trump and others of inciting violence in Washington, DC
“This moment in time may call for this dynamic, but in the long run it will be disastrous for the great purpose and ideals of the open Internet,” Dorsey said. “A business decision-making company to liberalize itself is different from removing access by a government, yet can feel a lot.”
To help deal with this, Dorsey said he is working on a platform that can “serve as a fundamental Internet technology that is not controlled or influenced by a single individual or entity.”
However, he said that global public interaction is the “best and most relevant” solution.
“Everything we learn in this moment will improve our effort, and can push us to be what we are: a humanity working together.”
Mr. Trump addressed social media censorship in his first video message on Wednesday, following which the House impeached him on January 6 on one count of inciting a rebellion to “incite violence against the United States government.”
After condemning last week’s riots in the Capitol – without any provocation to have any ownership of it, for which he has been impeached – Mr Trump has “unprecedented attacks on free speech we have seen in recent times” spoke about.
Shortly after the riots,Mr. Trump’s personal account was permanently suspended, and Suspended his account for the remaining presidential term. on Tuesday, Mr. Trump was temporarily banned from uploading new content.
Meanwhile, the “free speech” platformApple and Google were suspended from the App Store, and eventually shut down by Amazon Web Services, for failing to limit the content that incited the violence. Several posts showed Trump supporters taking part in the “Million Militia March” on January 20, and calling on others to “Patriots” to carry their weapons to Washington.
Many called for a second civil war as Mr. Trump lost the election.
In a video posted on the White House’s Twitter account, Mr. Trump said, “These are stressful and difficult times. Efforts to censor, cancel, and blacklist our fellow citizens are wrong, and they are dangerous.” “Now what should we do not to listen to each other, but to silence each other. We can all rise above the ranks by choosing from our actions and find common ground and common purpose.”
