Twitter CEO Makes Stunning Admission Of Bias During CNN Interview

20 Août, 2018, 00:28 | Auteur: Auguste Feret
  • Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey I 'fully admit' our bias is 'more left-leaning'

"And I think it's important to articulate our bias, and to share it with people so that people understand us, but we need to remove all bias from how we act, and our policies, and our enforcement".

'We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit more left-leaning, ' Dorsey told Brian Stelter. But he denied "doing something behind political ideology or viewpoints", claiming that's the "real question behind the question".

His comments come following criticism from conservatives, including President Trump, that Twitter is "shadow-banning" right-wing users to stifle their voices on the platform.

Asked about reports that Twitter is "shadow-banning" certain posts and accounts - a process by which the blocking of a user or their content will not be readily apparent to the user - Dorsey dodged the question.

He explained that Twitter's definition of "shadow banning" is "hiding tweets from everyone without that person [who published the tweet] knowing about it". Not good. We will look into this discriminatory and illegal practice at once! "We look at behavior", he said.

Earlier this month, YouTube, Facebook and Apple banned Jones' content. "There's not one single definition", Dorsey said. I'm not naïve enough to believe that it's going to change it for everyone, but it's worth a shot'.

On the other hand, some Democrats also want Dorsey to testify due to their interest of possible Russian activity on the platform during the 2016 election.
