In widely shared social media messages, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey (Jack Dorsey) on Wednesday supported the decision last week to ban President Trump from accessing the company’s platform, saying it was not because he was “celebrating or proud” but based on “ Threats to personal safety on Twitter and on Twitter.”
Dorsey said in a post on Wednesday that it was “the right decision.”
He said: “We are facing an abnormal and unstable situation that forces us to focus all actions on public safety.” “Offline injuries due to online speeches are facts, and this is the primary impetus for our policies and law enforcement. force.”
However, Dorsey said the ban on accounts “has substantial and significant impact.”
“Although there are obvious and obvious exceptions, I think the prohibition is our failure to promote healthy dialogue in the end… These actions must be taken to distract public dialogue. They divide us. They limit clarification, redemption and learning and set a precedent. I think this is dangerous: the power that individuals or companies have as part of a global public conversation.”
He also said that Twitter is only a small part of the larger conversations on the entire Internet.
Dorsey said that if people disagree with the rules of the platform and the enforcement of those rules, “they can simply switch to another service.”But when the incident unfolded like last week, this capacity was limited, when multiple social media sites did not appear to be coordinated, and Mr. Trump and others who allegedly instigated violence in Washington, DC were censored.
Dorsey said: “This kind of motivation may be needed at this moment, but in the long run, it will undermine the noble purpose and ideals of the open Internet.” “A company that makes a business decision to regulate its own is different from a company whose government cancels access. But it feels the same.”
To help solve this problem, Dorsey said that he is developing a platform that can be used as a “basic Internet technology that is not controlled or influenced by any individual or entity.”
However, he temporarily stated that the global public dialogue is the “best and most relevant” solution.
“Everything we learn at this moment will improve our efforts and make us what we want to be: a human working together.”
After the House of Representatives impeached him on January 6 for inciting an uprising for “deliberately inciting violence against the US government,” Trump censored social media in the first video on Wednesday.
After condemning the riots in the Capitol last week, Trump did not take any responsibility for any incitement of his impeachment, and then talked about “our unprecedented attacks on freedom of speech in recent days.”
Soon after the riot,Permanently suspend Mr. Trump’s personal account, and During his presidency, his account was suspended. Tuesday, Mr. Trump is temporarily prohibited from uploading new content.
At the same time, the “freedom of speech” platformThe app store was suspended by Apple and Google due to the inability to review content that incited violence, and was eventually closed by Amazon Web Services. Several articles show that Trump’s supporters called on others to participate in the “Millions of Militia March” on January 20 and asked “Patriots” to bring weapons to Washington.
Many people called for a second civil war because Trump lost the election.
Trump said in a video posted on the White House’s Twitter account: “This is a tense and difficult time. Efforts to censor, cancel and blacklist our fellow citizens are wrong and dangerous. “What is needed now is for us to listen to each other, not to remain silent with each other. All of us can choose through our actions to make ourselves beyond the rankings and find common ground and common goals.”
