Jack Dorsey admitted errors at Twitter and said the site always has issues

December 15, 2022: -On Tuesday, Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey did not mention Elon Musk. But in a blog post, he is making clear that the firm he once led still had huge problems then and now.

Dorsey said he stated his voice to the discussion around the “Twitter Files,” which Musk released the previous week to support his claims that prior management was biased against conservatives in its handling of content moderation.

At the start of his post, Dorsey stated that he’s come to believe in three principles. Social media is withstanding “corporate and government control,” the author removes content they produce, and “moderation is implemented by algorithmic choice.”

“The Twitter when I led it and the Twitter does not meet any of these principles,” Dorsey states.

Musk, who completed his $44 billion acquisition of Twitter in October, has rolled back the amount of the old moderation policies. He’s welcomed back retired President Donald Trump, who has permanently kicked off the site under Dorsey’s leadership following the January 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.

Dorsey didn’t level any specific criticism at Musk. He said he abandoned his efforts to get the company on the right path after activist company Elliott Management got connected with the company over two years ago.

“This is fault alone,” Dorsey stated. “I completely gave up forcing for them when an activist was coming to our stock in 2020.”

Regarding Twitter’s decision is suspending Trump, Dorsey said he believes “there was no ill meaning or hidden agendas, and everyone acted according to the information we had at the time.”

Still, he said that “mistakes existed, ” and Twitter would be at a better level today if the firm “focused more on tools for the people who use the service instead than tools for us.”

Dorsey added that the social messaging platforms shouldn’t take down content or eliminate accounts as “doing so complicates important context, learning, and enforcement of illegal activity.”

He encouraged the idea of a “free and open protocol for social media” that any person or company doesn’t own as a way to adhere to his stated principles.

“The problem is that we have a firm who owns both the protocol and discovery of content,” Dorsey stated. “Which ultimately puts one person of what’s available and seen, or not.”

Dorsey is citing Bluesky, a nonprofit organized by Twitter, and Mastodon and Matrix as emerging projecting that could potentially live up to his points of what includes a free and open social media protocol. He added that he would offer grants to promising projects, which started with $1 million to Signal, an encrypted messaging app.
