Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey spoke out Wednesday about his company’s decision last week to ban President Trump from its platform.

“I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump, or how we got here,” Dorsey began a lengthy Twitter thread. “After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter. Was this correct?

“I believe this was the right decision for Twitter,” Dorsey continued. “We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all.

“That said, having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications. While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I feel a ban is a failure of ours ultimately to promote healthy conversation. And a time for us to reflect on our operations and the environment around us,” the CEO went on.

Dorsey acknowledged that taking such actions “fragment the public conversation”, “divide us” and “limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning.” He also admitted that the power of his corporation in the “global public conversation” has set a “dangerous” precedent.

  1. The guy is talking as glibly as a politician.

    Between the lines he seems to be saying “I didn’t realize how badly Twitter stock would fall and how much competition would start because of this so now I’m rethinking the decision”

  2. The social media ban against the president is actually great. With the excuse that he can’t get through to the public he’ll get to use the Emergency Broadcast System which will interfere with all mainstream news and will expose the 1/2 million real criminals on the indictment list all over the world.
