Jack Dorsey reveals Twitter’s mistakes during his leadership era. The former Twitter CEO admitted to banning the account permanently.
“As I said before, I don’t believe permanent blocking of any kind (except illegal activity) is right, or justifiable,”Jack Dorsey tweeted Saturday (4/30).
Jack Dorsey did not explicitly mention the blocking in question. However, like the India Express on Sunday (1/5), it’s more likely to hit Donald Trump.
Trump’s Twitter account was permanently blocked after what happened on June 6, 2021. At that time, Trump, who had 88 million followers, spread hoaxes and hate.
Not only that, but Twitter also temporarily blocked The New York Post’s account after publishing an article about Hunter’s laptop, the son of US President Joe Biden.
Dorsey claims Twitter is always trying to solve various problems that occur, and any decisions taken to resolve the issue are entirely Dorsey’s responsibility.
He said some problems could be fixed quickly, while others required solutions in the form of major structural changes that would take time.
On these structural problems, Dorsey said his biggest failure was not responding to the problem quickly enough.
“There are some things that could be improved, whereas others require system-wide thinking and implementation,”Jack Dorsey tweeted in the same thread.
“It’s important for me to get critical feedback in all its forms. It’s also important to get the space and time to address it. It has to be done publicly.”He added
During this time, Dorsey was faced with difficult freedom questions, the challenge of creating a profitable platform, and the criticism he spread.
Under Dorsey’s leadership, Twitter acquired the email newsletter service Revue and launched Spaces, a feature that lets users listen to live conversations.
