“I’m not proud, but it was the right decision” six days after Jack Dorothy’s Twitter Chief Executive Officer (CEO) permanently suspended US President Donald Trump’s account.
The city’s CEO said on his Twitter on the 13th, “We took action after clearly warning in advance, and based on the best information, we made a policy on physical threats.” “I believe it is the right decision for Twitter,” he said. “We are in an unusual situation where we have to put all our efforts into public safety. The actual threat posed by online expression has become a factor that determines the direction of our policy.”
Regarding the point of violating the’freedom of expression’, he said, “It is true that this policy divided the field of public opinion and made a precedent that I also feel’dangerous’.” You can use it.”
President Trump, who had previously been expelled from Twitter and Facebook, had his Snapchat account permanently suspended on the same day. A spokesman for Snapchat said, “We have decided to permanently close President Trump’s account on the basis of inciting violence, disseminating hate speech, and disseminating false information.”
Some have also raised suspicion that there was some kind of sympathy between the giant SNS companies over the “Trump exit”. In response, the city’s CEO denied, saying, “It was not a coordinated measure.” President Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., asked Tesla CEO Elon Musk to “create a new SNS.” Trump Jr. said on Facebook on the 12th, “I came up with a way to confront the ridiculous censorship that is happening right now.” “What if Musk created an SNS platform?” “We want the new platform to be completely neutral,” he accused of “Twitter has become virtually the judge of freedom of expression.”
President Trump celebrated the launch of SpaceX’s manned spacecraft in May of last year and praised Musk as “the great brain.” In January of last year, Tesla praised “Musk is a genius” when its market cap exceeded 100 billion dollars (about 110 trillion won). “I love the idea,” Musk said in Trump’s plans to create a space force in 2018. It sounds great.”
