Twitter CEO justifies blocking Donald Trump’s account but calls it a “failure” of the company

Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter, has endorsed the blocking of the account to Donald Trump, president of the United States, but also ensures that it sets a “dangerous” precedent and that he considers it a failure of the company by not being able to ensure a healthy conversation between the users.

“While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I believe that a ban is a our ultimate failure to promote healthy conversation. Having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications, “Dorsey explained through a Twitter message.

The social network explained the reason why he expelled Trump: “There is a risk of further incitement to violence” by the president.

“Set a dangerous precedent”

The Twitter executive is sure of the decision to veto Trump, but it also has its buts: “Set a precedent that can be dangerous. Having to take these actions fragments the public conversation. “

Since Donald Trump was elected President of the United States, he has used their Twitter account as a means of expressing themselves openly, but this social network limited its access since several of its supporters they broke into the Capitol a week ago.

This decision has greatly angered the followers of the extreme right, who accuse Twitter of restrict freedom of expression. Unsurprisingly, Biden’s supporters have applauded the decision.

Donald Trump is just a week away from officially ceasing to be President of the United States after four years of a controversial mandate.
