Twitter Founder Jack Dorsey Says He Now Agrees With Elon Musk That Trump’s Account Should Be Reinstated

Published

on

Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey has stated that he supports Elon Musk’s decision to lift a ban on Donald Trump from the platform.

Musk, who is close to completing his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter, announced on Tuesday that he intended to lift the ban, calling it a “morally bad decision and foolish in the extreme.”

In response to his supporters storming the US Capitol and attempting to block the certification of Joe Biden’s election victory, Trump was banned from Twitter in January 2021.

Musk said at a car-future conference in London, “I do think it was not correct to ban Donald Trump.”

Dorsey, who was CEO until November 2021, agreed with Musk, according to Musk.

‘I do agree,’ Dorsey tweeted, adding that he supported bans on sharing content like child sexual exploitation (CSE), but not on sharing in general.

‘There are exceptions (CSE, illegal behavior, spam or network manipulation, etc. ), but permanent bans are a failure of ours and do not work, as I wrote about after the event (and called for a resilient social media protocol).’

Dorsey then linked to a tweet from January 13, 2021, in which he defended his decision.

‘I don’t celebrate or feel proud of the fact that we had to ban @realdonaldtrump from Twitter, or how we got here,’ Dorsey said at the time.

‘After a clear warning that we would take this action, we made a decision based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter.’

‘I believe Twitter made the correct decision. We were confronted with an extraordinary and untenable situation that required us to focus all of our efforts on public safety. Offline harm caused by online speech is undeniably real, and it is what drives our policy and enforcement above all.’

Dorsey added a caveat in his lengthy thread that the decision would need to be reconsidered.

‘While this dynamic may be appropriate at this time, it will be detrimental to the noble purpose and ideals of the open internet in the long run.

‘A company making a business decision to moderate itself is not the same as a government removing access, but it can feel very similar,’ he said.

When Axios’ business editor Dan Primack asked Dorsey about his thoughts, he said he now regretted the call.

‘It was a business decision, it shouldn’t have been,’ he said.

‘And we should always revisit our decisions and evolve as necessary. I stated in that thread and still believe that permanent bans of individuals are directionally wrong.’

The letter read;

16 May 2022

RE: CHUCK’S CHEESE & FNAF

It is with great concern that we bring the following to your attention. We have noticed that some of our learners are acting strangely and out of character.

We learned that some of them came into contact with a terrible webpage called: Chucky’s Cheese Restaurant.

Here children interact with a demonic doll. At first, it is very entertaining and friendly, but after a while, the doll indoctrinates them, dares them and threatens them if they do not do certain things.

Daring them includes: strangle a friend, kill a teacher, burn your house, etc.

Chucky Cheese Restaurant was recently replaced by FNAF- Five Nights at Freddy, which is even worse.

These sites are already active in Namibia.

We urge you to please control what your child is watching on your phone, their own phone, tablets, laptops, etc.

We, as parents, are thinking they are playing an innocent game, but it is NOT. They are dared to even kill.

Please also inform your friends and other family members of this. Please contact our school Counselor with any enquiries or comments. tours faithfully.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam, a celebrity fetish priest, has expressed Ghanaians’ collective frustration with President Nana Akufo-Addo.

According to him, President Akufo-Addo will go to hell for deceiving Ghanaians and failing the people.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam said on Angel FM, where he pronounced the curses, that Akufo-Addo has failed to deliver on his promises to Ghanaians and is thus a sure candidate for Hell.

“You mentioned that we have the money yet are hungry. But now that you’ve joined the government, we’re even more hungry. We can’t afford to live comfortably, and our girlfriends are deserting us because we can’t afford to keep up,” he explained.

“The bible talks about lies, and the President lied, thus he will go to hell,” the fetish priest believes the President’s lies will send him to hell.

Nana Kwaku Bonsam expressed concern that Ghanaians were living in abject poverty, which had been exacerbated by poor governance and economic hardship.

As a result, he has placed the blame squarely on the shoulders of President Akufo-Addo, who he claims has failed to capitalize on the country’s resources in order to push Ghana to become a prosperous nation.
