“I had Jack Dorsey, the CEO of twitter on the podcast Friday and many people felt I didn’t grill him hard enough on twitter censoring right wing
My intention going into the podcast was to talk to him about that, but also to talk to him about the responsibilities that come with managing world
wide conversation with a platform that no one ever saw coming. The other idea I wanted to discuss was what possible new technologies could be the
next version of social media.
I asked him about censorship, but some people on the right felt that I didn’t go after him hard enough. Some people, like whoever wrote this article
think I’m “right wing.”
I’m not, and I don’t even think anyone who has paid attention to anything I’ve said believes that. It seems like someone wanted a good
controversial click-baity title for the article regardless of whether or not it was accurate.
As for the interview, I asked the questions I wanted to ask, and although his answers on some of them were vague, I felt like I got out of him
whatever I was going to get without being too confrontational.
There have also been talks of us editing the video and deleting disparaging YouTube comments. That’s not true. The video #ed up while we were
filming and the tricaster crashed. As far as I know Jamie put it all back together. As for the YouTube comments we don’t delete those. I don’t
know how it works, but I suspect there’s some form of what Dorsey talked about with twitter where machine learning downvotes certain perspectives,
or what they deem “offensive” or “rude” comments. What definitely isn’t is Jamie or anyone else from my team deleting things.
I definitely think there’s a discussion to be had about censoring comments through computer programs or manual deleting, I want you folks to know
we’re not responsible for any of that.
I do my best, and if I didn’t fulfill some of your expectations I can understand. Honestly, I think I learn more from negative reactions than from
positive ones, and I truly appreciate having a public review of these conversations because it’s part of how I get better at this #.”
Take it for what it’s worth.
I like joe and think he’s done more good than harm.
But I don’t think he’s perfect, and he very well could be “cia” or compromised or whatever people like to say to discredit him and call him a
There’s obviously been times where he had not pushed as far as we’d like him to... maybe the next guy that sits down with Dorsey for two hours
will do better ?
Either way, he just one dude.
Take him off the pedistal.
