Jack Dorsey, Twitter’s chief executive, is using his company as a “weapon” in pursuit of “his own political party beliefs,” according tomedia reports.
In 2017, Carr was appointed by U.S. President Donald Trump, who was interviewed Monday to discuss Trump’s executive order on social media. The order is aimed at a service passed by the United States in 1996, which requires technology companies to be held accountable for content sent by users and allows companies to manage content in “good faith.” But in recent years, as the size and influence of technology companies have expanded, their content management has come under increasing scrutiny.
Mr. Trump’s order has drawn widespread criticism from the tech industry, which says the ban would be counterproductive, leading to further restrictions on free speech on technology platforms to avoid accountability. Even Democrats who support changes to the 1996 law say Mr. Trump’s order is diverting attention from the new coronavirus epidemic that is raging in the United States. The outbreak has killed more than 100,000 people in the United States.
In an interview on Monday, Carr said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg did a better job of content management than Twitter CEO Dorsey.
“I think Zuckerberg did the right thing, but Facebook was wrong, and the company’s approach deviated from Zuckerberg’s thinking from time to time,” he said. Over the past few weeks, I’ve seen a big difference between What Facebook and Twitter have done. Zuckerberg has been expressing the idea that he has put political beliefs aside, and he’s doing a good job of supporting free speech. Jack Dorsey, on the other hand, is turning the company into a weapon in pursuing his own political partisan beliefs. (Line Cloud)
