Donald Trump Campaign Might Be Misleading – Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey Fires Back
Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey has fired back at President Donald Trump after he accused the social media platform of meddling in the US election which will be taking place later this year. He also tackled Mark Zuckerberg after he suggested that Twitter was trying to be “an arbiter of truth”.
The exchange ensued after Twitter applied its fact-check label to two tweets shared by President Donald Trump, which prompted readers to fact check the president’s claims.
Dorsey’s response was spured by a Fox News appearance by senior White House advisor Kellyanne Conway, where she goaded viewers to harass Twitter’s head of site integrity, Yoel Roth.
He stated that Trump’s tweets were fact-checked because they “may mislead people into thinking they don’t need to register to get a ballot.”
Fact check: there is someone ultimately accountable for our actions as a company, and that’s me. Please leave our employees out of this. We’ll continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make.
Per our Civic Integrity policy (https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies/election-integrity-policy…), the tweets yesterday may mislead people into thinking they don’t need to register to get a ballot (only registered voters receive ballots). We’re updating the link on @realDonaldTrump’s tweet to make this more clear.
