BEIJING, May 28 (Xinhua) — Ceo Jack Dorsey on Wednesday responded to criticism from Trump and Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg after Twitter was criticized for adding a verified hashtag to Trump’s tweets about the postal vote.
Dorsey tweeted Wednesday night that he was “responsible” for Twitter’s addition of a verified tag to Trump’s tweets and implored the public to “not involve our employees.” “We will continue to flag false or controversial information related to the election,” he tweeted. If mistakes are made, we will acknowledge and take responsibility for them. “
Trump has tweeted several tweets about his tweets, accusing twitter of interfering with the 2020 presidential election.
Zuckerberg told Fox News Wednesday that Facebook’s policy is different from Twitter’s when it comes to information verification, and that “I strongly believe that Facebook should not be an arbiter of the authenticity of internet users’ statements.”
Dorsey also responded to Zuckerberg’s comments, saying that being a “truth arbiter” is not Twitter’s goal, “Our goal is to show users conflicting statements and controversial information that allows users to make their own judgments.”
