With limited exceptions, former Twitter chief Jack Dorsey says he does not believe in permanent bans on the platform. Elon Musk indicated on Tuesday that he would lift the Twitter ban on former President Trump after he took over the platform.
“Musk claims that Jack agrees that individual Twitter users should not be permanently banned. Axios Business Editor Dan Primack tweeted on Tuesday: “Reminding that Dorsey was the CEO when such a ban was imposed,” he wrote.
“I agree,” Dorsey wrote in a follow-up tweet. Permanent sanctions are our failure and do not work, which I spoke about here after the event (and called for a strong social media protocol). “
He retweeted a statement written in 2021, following Trump’s ban on Twitter following the January 6, 2021 capital riots, in which Trump supporters, encouraged by the former president’s fake rhetoric about the 2020 election, tried to dissuade Congress from certifying the results. Selection
Twitter has raised the possibility that Trump’s remarks could lead to more bloodshed in the United States. “I think it was a good decision for Twitter,” Dorsey said in a statement at the time. As a result of a unique and unavoidable situation, we had to sacrifice all our efforts for public safety. “
It is true that a ban has real and serious consequences, “he said. In my opinion, despite the clear and obvious exceptions, sanctions on such matters are a failure on our part to encourage healthy dialogue. “
Tesla CEO Elon Musk said Tuesday at the Financial Times’ Future of the Car event that Twitter’s move to ban former President Trump from the company was a “mistake.”
A large part of the country was “isolated,” but Trump “did not lose his voice,” he claimed.
According to the executive director of the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), President Trump should be allowed to return to Twitter.
“Whether you like him or not, President Trump is one of the most important politicians in this country, and a lot of people want to hear from him. “We know this because we’ve taken him to court 400 times,” Romero said.
