Dorsey said: “I am unhappy or proud that we have to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter or how we got here.” “Offline injuries due to online speeches are facts, and this is the primary driver of our policy and enforcement .”
Dorsey worked hard to resolve the implications of this decision in his post, admitting that “accounts must be banned to have a real and significant impact.” He said deleting users distracted public conversations and caused divisions.
He said: “Despite the obvious and obvious exceptions, I think the ban is our failure to promote healthy dialogue in the end. It is also time for us to reflect on our operations and the surrounding environment.”
He said: “The inspection and accountability of this power has always been the fact that services like Twitter are just a small part of the larger public conversations that take place on the entire Internet.” “If people disagree with ours Rules and enforcement, they can simply go to another Internet service.”
He continued: “This concept was challenged last week, when many basic Internet tool providers also decided not to host content they considered dangerous.”
The decision to ban the president from using Twitter had direct consequences: Trump lost access to more than 88 million followers, a move that exposed the company to complaints from Republicans about the censorship system. Democrats criticized the role of social media in benefiting Trump and warned of new regulations to regulate the technology industry.
Dorsey hinted in his post that the behavior of the technology industry may also have long-term effects.
“This dynamic may be needed at this moment, but in the long run, it will undermine the noble purpose and ideals of the open Internet. Companies that make business decisions for self-regulation are different from the government’s cancellation of access rights, but it feels similar.” Ersey said.
“Yes, we all need to carefully consider the inconsistencies in our policies and implementation. Yes, we need to study how our services motivate people to be distracted and hurt. Yes, we need greater transparency in our mediation work All of this cannot weaken the free and open global Internet.”
