(BREAKING WIDE) – Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Flips on LIVE TV, admits to SHOCKING Obstruction of Free Speech.
Not long ago Twitter censored New York Post’s Hunter Biden article, blocking and preventing it from being shared on the platform. After facing backlash over obstruction of free speech and the abuse of section 230, Dorsey along Facebook Mark Zuckerberg testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted he was wrong to censor the New York Post article after massive grilling by the members of the Senate Judiciary Committee on Capitol Hill.
“Thank you to members of the Judiciary Committee the opportunity to speak with the American people about Twitter and your concerns around censorship and suppression of a specific news article. And generally what we saw in the 2020 U.S elections conversation.”
“We were called here today because of an enforcement decision we made against New York post based on a policy we created in 2018 to prevent Twitter from being used to spread hack materials, this resulted in blocking people from sharing a New York Post article publicly or privately.”
“We made a quick interpretation using no other evidence that the materials in the article were obtained through hacking and according to our policy, we block them from being shared, upon further consideration we admitted this action was wrong and corrected it within 24 hours,” Dorsey said.
Dorsey said “I hope this illustrates the rationale behind our actions and demonstrates our ability to take feedback, admit mistakes and make changes.”
Jack Dorsey also spoke on Twitter policy that place labels on content before and after the 2020 election.
“More than a year ago the public asked us to offer additional context to help make potentially misleading information more apparent. We did exactly that applying labels to over 300,000 tweets from October 27th to November 11th. We also changed our product inorder to help increase context and encourage more thoughtful consideration before tweets are shared broadly,” Dorsey said.
