I wonder why so many are moving to Parler if Twitter is truly promoting ‘more speech’?! ‘Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, amidst controversy surrounding Twitter’s censorship allegations, made the claim that the platform’s policies actually encourage “more speech.”
Dorsey, alongside Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, testified in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee regarding regulation of the content posted on social media platforms.
The main motive of the hearing, based on what the committee chairman Lindsey Graham says, is to help senators gain more information for evaluating Section 230, which safeguards social media companies from the liability arising from the third-party content posted on their platforms.
“I don’t want the government to take over the job of telling America what tweets are legitimate and what are not. I don’t want the government deciding what content to take up and put down. I think we’re all in that category,” said Graham.
Dorsey, throughout the hearing, claimed that Twitter’s controversial policies weed out abusive and misleading content from the platform, creating a safer space to express themselves, which according to him, promotes free speech. Yet, Dorsey didn’t address the danger in allowing Big Tech platforms to decide what is and what isn’t “misinformation” which is where the problem lies.’https://reclaimthenet.org/jack-dorsey-says-twitters-policies-are-designed-to-encourage-more-speech/
