In wake of Trump ban, Twitter CEO says ‘this is going to be much bigger than just one account’: Report

Twitter made international headlines last week with its decision to permanently ban President Donald Trump from its social media platform.

Now, in a new twist, the company’s CEO has been caught on tape admitting that his decision to suspend the president’s account has set an alarming precedent.

“After a clear warning”

Jack Dorsey’s remarks came in the wake of Twitter’s announcement that banning the president was deemed necessary to prevent future violence following the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill.

Numerous Trump critics have blamed his rhetoric for inciting the deadly siege of the Capitol building, and Twitter’s move sparked a widespread purge of the president and his supporters in all corners of the internet.

Dorsey seemed to grapple with the weight of his company’s decision in a recent tweet on the matter.

“I do not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban [Trump] from Twitter, or how we got here,” he wrote, as Breitbart reported. “After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter. Was this correct?”

The CEO went on to share his belief that it “was the right decision for Twitter,” claiming that the company “faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety.”

“This revolution of whistleblowing”

Nevertheless, Dorsey conceded that the ban had resulted in “significant ramifications,” including the decisions of many other companies to follow suit and ban the president.

Despite the timing of those moves, however, he insisted that it was not a “coordinated” effort among Big Tech titans, rather it “likely” resulted from other companies reaching “their own conclusions” or being “emboldened by the actions of others.”

While he was clearly attempting to portray himself and his company as the good guys in this narrative, Dorsey’s talking points largely fell by the wayside in light of a video put out by Project Veritas that purports to show the CEO’s more unscripted reaction.

“We are focused on one account right now, but this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week, and the next few weeks, and go on beyond the inauguration,” Dorsey says in the clip, according to Breitbart.

Project Veritas founder James O’Keefe later described the perceived importance of his newest revelation, telling Fox News Channel host Sean Hannity: “They’re explicitly saying they’re going to be censoring days, weeks in the future. So this person comes to me…and gives us this video and it’s kind of creating this revolution of whistleblowing in Big Tech.”

  1. It’s time to break Facebook and Twitter up this is gone to far!
    I have removed both Facebook and Twitter and I believe if we stand together on this and contact our congressmen this will bring them down!
    They are having more influence than even our congress!

    1. They even cancelled Parler!!!! Something must be done & FAST, they are turning our country into Nazi Germany!!!! WE ARE A FREE NATION & MUST FIGHT TO KEEP OUR FREEDOM!!

    2. Totally agree, I got rid of my accounts years ago and it is not that hard to do without them. Actually, its more peaceful and less stressful without them.

    3. They are worried that President Trump will tell us real patriots to go as a collective and eliminate the evil among the Dems and Reps alike.

    4. The democrats have big tech pushing behind them and believing all their lies. Why do we allow them to spend our money on trying to convict Trump of their lies and false accusations. The Democrats are corrupt and dangerous for our country and our beliefs. They are suppose to work for we the people and our country. We need those idiots removed.

  2. Well the decision making process is badly flawed. Kind a got yourself on a skewer. Let go of the worldly efforts to destroy people you don’t like or your circle will be uncomfortable. No matter how much money we have or no matter how powerfull we begin to feel we all have a circle to complete.

  4. A bit late to be asking, “Is this correct?”, Mr. Dorsey? There are and will be consequences from this kind of vindictive and destructive action. You deserve to lose every single customer for this egregious move!

    1. I would say AMEN to what Ms. Rita says ! The BIG tech executives showed us that they acted wisely to avoid a bigger catastrophe :I think it is a BUNCH of B.S. They wanted to appear like HEROES for what they did ! They are IMMATURE ,and acted on impulse unaware of the possible consequences ! Now that they are losing a lot of money , they are trying to justify what they’d ! Good luck guys ! Expect NO help from any body ! You reap what you sow ! I once had Twitter : never felt like using it !

  5. Power, that is the goal. What did we do before Twitter and other computerized ways of communicating? Well, we did have the telephone, and the mailman, and before that we had newspapers to get your news from, A thing called radio where 6 p.m. news brought you information from around the world. Oh, yes, remember the pen and ink thingy that you use to put words on a piece of paper? Put paper in an envelope and gave it to someone who sent it off to the person on the front of the envelope. It was slow, but it worked. Things happen, you just do not need instantaneous notification. We as a human race survived thru all of the above ways of getting information. Anticipation is much better than instant gratification.

  6. Sorry Jack, but you can’t rationalize this action because your whole premise is simply untrue.

    There has not, and is not any objective evidence to support a finding of incitement to violence in the Presidents words, and actually quite the contrary, but, there is such evidence to support that finding in the words of countless Democrat voices in Congress, the media and soon the White House. None of which has even been questioned, let alone suspended.

  7. He needs to go to Jail and find out what life is really about. Talk about subversive pandering in the name of justice his or the American way.
