Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says banning Trump was ’right’ but ’dangerous’

Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s CEO, has said banning President Donald Trump from the microblogging platform was the right thing to do. However, Dorsey acknowledged that the ban was in part Twitter’s failure as the company hadn’t done enough to encourage ’healthy conversations.’ He also said the ban ’sets a precedent I feel is dangerous.’ He said ’extraordinary circumstances’ forced Twitter to ban Trump.

Slippery slope. All that’s been proven in my eyes from the last year is that what the right has been saying for years is true. It didn’t have to be, but it was made reality.

You know something is wrong when you have to explain why a decision is right. I have a feeling some favors were exchanged between the Politicians and big tech... Like maybe postponing the break up of Big Tech if they just shut Trump up?

I was watching the House vote yesterday on the Impeachment articles, and I forget his name, but one rep literally stated that if Vice President Pence did not do his biding, then he should be tossed out of government... go rewatch. It was within the last hour or so.

Jack should of just said that it is not in his financial interest to ban anyone. He would of gotten a much better reception.

We gave Tech the keys to the castle. We used Twitter like some sort of public utility so politicians could speak directly to us. We gave tech section 230 because we said “you are an open park where people say what they want.” Big tech is now purging if you don’t confirm to their hyper politically correct leftist view of the world. Now what happens? The internet will need to fragment that is if Tech who controls app stores and cloud servers even lets us

The right choice if he wanted to commit corporate suicide. Stocks are STILL in freefall. Twitter is collapsing after shedding 50% of their site traffic. They have destroyed their market value and destroyed their ad revenue by killing traffic. I think it was the right decision too because it will likely be the end of the disgusting anti-american business.

The best thing I heard from him then was that he acknowledged that his company had not done enough to promote healthy conversations. Moving forward I hope that he will adapt his company to prevent it happening again.

I see the point about censorship and everything but I am kind of happy that we do not have to read trumps idiotic tweets all the time. He is a lame duck president anyway so it is about time that he goes out in silence
