The CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey,supported the account lockdown in that social network of the president of the United States, Donald Trump, But he said it sets a “dangerous” precedent and represents a failure to promote healthy conversation on the platform. “Having to ban an account has real and significant ramifications,” Dorsey said in a series of tweets. “While there are clear and obvious exceptions, I think a ban is a failure our ultimate in promoting healthy conversation. ”Trump has used social media as a megaphone during his presidency, but social media platforms limited their access ever since a violent mob of his supporters stormed the US Congress last week. The platforms claim that Trump could use their accounts to foment more riots in the period prior to the inauguration of the president-elect Joe Biden. At the end of last week, Twitter closed Trump’s account, kicking him off the global platform that he has fervently used during his tenure to make proclamations, accusations and spread fake news. The company said it blocked Trump’s account “due to the risk of a increased incitement to violence “ by the agent. Twitter’s decision has been welcomed by critics of the president, but has angered members of the far right who accuse the social network of restrict freedom of expression. Dorsey said Wednesday that while he believes Twitter made the right decision to veto Trump, the action It “sets a precedent” that it considers “dangerous.” “Having to take these actions fragments the public conversation,” he said.
