He defended the decision to suspend US President Donald Trump’s account on Twitter, but warned that the move could set a dangerous precedent. Jack Dorsey said in a message posted on his Twitter page that he was not happy with the decision, which was made after careful consideration.However, he acknowledged that decisions like this could set a dangerous precedent, ruin public debate and divide people.
“I’m not celebrating, and I’m not proud of the fact that we banned the @realdonaldtrump account or how we got here.” (…) However, I think this was the right decision for Twitter. We faced extraordinary and unsustainable circumstances that forced us to focus on public safety in all our actions. The offline harm that results from online speech can be considered demonstrably real, and it primarily guides our policy and its implementation
I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realDonaldTrump from Twitter, or how we got here. After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter. Was this correct?

Twitter suspended Trump’s account indefinitely last week, underlining the danger of inciting further violence after protesters stormed the Capitol, presumably as a result of its messages.
The incumbent president has also been banned from Facebook, YouTube and Instagram for similar reasons these days, at least until the inauguration of his successor, Joe Biden, on January 20, and Twitch and Snapchat have also made his site inaccessible. In response, Trump accused social media of censorship.
Earlier, Amazon removed the Parler social site, a favorite of Trump believers, from its app offering, the telegraph office recalled. The giant also defended the decision on Tuesday, saying the site’s operators were unable or unwilling to remove the threats, including incitement to torture, murder and rape. They added that several on the site were talking about organizing into militias in connection with Biden’s inauguration. Parler called Amazon’s decision politically motivated and filed a lawsuit against it in Seattle federal court.
