'Is our decision correct?' Asked Dorsey, 'I think (permanent freeze on President Trump's account) was the right decision for Twitter. We're unusually accepting it. Faced with a difficult situation, we had to focus everything on public safety. As a result of our online speech, the reality was harmed, and we said, 'Anyway, policy. We should enforce it. ”He emphasized that Twitter's decision was correct.
I believe this was the right decision for Twitter. 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.— Jack (@jack) January 14, 2021
Dorsey admitted that Twitter failed to 'promote sound communication,' and said it needed to be critical of the contradictions between Twitter's policies and enforcement and to increase moderation transparency. It was.
This is the first time Dorsey has mentioned on Twitter about his actions against President Trump. While Twitter's decision was correct, Dorsey said the ability of a company to ban one user's account 'destroys the noble purpose and ideals of the open Internet. The business of controlling itself. The decision is different from the government blocking access, but it looks the same as a result, 'he tweeted.
This moment in time might call for this dynamic, but over the long term it will be destructive to the noble purpose and ideals of the open internet. A company making a business decision to moderate itself is different from a government removing access, yet can feel much the same.— Jack (@jack) January 14, 2021
Finally, CEO Dorsey said, 'Our goal at this moment is to disarm us as much as possible, aiming for greater common understanding and more peace,' which will take place on the Internet. He argued that global dialogue was the best and best option.
I believe the internet and global public conversation is our best and most relevant method of achieving this. I also recognize it does not feel that way today. Everything we learn in this moment will better our effort, and push us to be what we are: one humanity working together.— Jack (@jack) January 14, 2021
