Twitter CEO Dorsey: Trump's Deactivation "Should Never gain Been Possible"
“It should never gain been possible” for a single staffer to temporarily deactivate the President’s twitter account, Jack Dorsey, the chief executive officer and co-founder of Twitter said Thursday.
“We had an employee who on their final day took it upon himself to deactivate the account,” Dorsey said at the novel York Times’ DealBook conference. “The account was not removed or suspended — it was deactivated, which is a very different state. It was not deleted. It was attach in a state to wait for the owner to reactivate and he reactivated it.”
When asked by Times columnist Andrew Ross Sorkin what Trump could say to acquire him removed from the service by Twitter formally, Dorsey insisted that “we hold every single account to the same standards, the same rules and the same policies.”
He did note, however, that there were provisions for fabric staying on Twitter whether it is considered newsworthy. That determination, however, is made subjectively, Dorsey said. The company will recognize to see whether journalists on Twitter are discussing something to see whether it’s considered newsworthy. “We work really tough to build certain we are listening to the journalists on our platform and to determine newsworthiness and what’s in the public interest and what’s not. In some cases, we’re going to acquire it wrong.”
Dorsey said that Twitter had failed to be sufficiently obvious in explaining the rules and polices that govern who can expend the service and what content they can post without being sanctioned.
“The only way we know to encourage build trust in the processes to be as obvious as process,” Dorsey said. “I wouldn’t give us a high grade at the moment.”
