Former Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defends company sale to Elon Musk: It’s a ‘new reset’



Before Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey called recent online attacks blames his former employees as “dangerous” while blaming the controversial content decisions the company made under his leadership.

Dorsey wrote in a blog post Third, Twitter ended up having too much power to make decisions about content under his guidance. “Users should have had more control over what they see online, and Twitter has done very poorly in building the tools to handle that,” he said. Dorsey added that he “completely gave up on promoting” those ideas after an active investor popped up in early 2020.

“I no longer hope to achieve any of that as a public company with no defense mechanisms (lack of two-class shares is key), he said. “I made plans to withdraw at that moment when I knew I was no longer a good fit for the company.”

Twitter has been under fire this past week after releasing internal communications about moderation decisions, including former President Donald Trump’s ban. The documents, dubbed “Twitter Files” by new owner Elon Musk, were published by journalists, who the billionaire took to Twitter and granted what he called “unobstructed” access. “.

Those upset about the decisions targeted Twitter employees who were associated with them.

“Current attacks against my former colleagues can be dangerous and solve nothing,” Dorsey said. “If you want to blame, point it at me and my actions, or my omissions.”

Dorsey defended the sale of Twitter to Musk, saying that the privatization of the company gave it a chance to “reset”.
