new Delhi. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Thursday defended the ban imposed on current US President Donald Trump, saying it was the right move to protect against offline damage caused by online speech. Let me tell you that last week Twitter had permanently banned Trump from its platform citing the risk of further inciting violence. Trump had addressed a crowd of his supporters who had hampered the process of confirming Joe Biden’s presidential victory by attacking the US Capitol.
Party is not celebrating by banning Trump
In a tweet, Dorsey said, “I am not celebrating and not proud of Twitter’s ban on At the Rate RealDonaldTrump.” After giving a clear warning that we will take this action, we decided on something that is a threat to physical safety, both on and off Twitter, with a better understanding. He blamed Twitter’s failure to promote healthy interactions and acknowledged that Twitter needs to seriously look into the discrepancies in our policies and how to implement them.
Over 70 thousand accounts closed
He stressed that a service like Twitter is only a small part of large public conversations on the Internet. If people do not agree with our rules and enforcement, then they can go to other Internet services. According to Twitter, it has suspended more than 70 thousand accounts after the violence and efforts in Washington DC. These accounts were largely sharing harmful content.
Dorsey said on bitcoin
The CEO of Twitter then talked about Bitcoin, a cryptocurrency and set to break new records. Regarding this, he stated that much of the obsession with Bitcoin is largely due to the model that demonstrates that it is a basic Internet technology that is not controlled or influenced by any individual or entity.
