Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: I 'fully admit' our bias is 'more left-leaning'
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Saturday that he "fully admit[s]" Twitter
employees share a largely left-leaning bias after facing accusations that
conservatives are discriminated against on the social media platform.
In an interview that aired Saturday on CNN, Dorsey said his company has a
responsibility to be open about its political viewpoints, but to operate
without bias when applying content policies to users.
"We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I
fully admit is...is more left-leaning," Dorsey says.
"But the real question behind the question is, are we doing something
according to political ideology or viewpoints? And we are not. Period," he
Dorsey went on to insist that his company only polices behavior on the
platform, not content.
Dorsey's remarks follow criticism from the right over supposed
"shadow-banning" of conservatives users. The platform and Dorsey have also
faced questions over the decision not to remove far-right conspiracy
theorist Alex Jones from the platform, despite other social media platforms
choosing to do so.
The Twitter CEO said in an interview with The Hill this week that Jones was
banned after he received complaints that Jones's content was inciting
"We were getting a number of reports around the tweet and the Periscope that
the content was inciting violence, which is against our terms of service,
and we took action," Dorsey said.
The InfoWars host received a week-long ban from the platform, but has been
removed from other services including YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music.
Dorsey is expected to testify next month before the Senate Intelligence
Committee on the issue of Russian election interference, and faces a
possible subpoena from the House Energy and Commerce Committee over
allegations of discrimination against conservatives on the platform.
