Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey generally agrees that individual users should not have permanent suspension on the platform. The billionaire Elon Musk, who now owns Twitter, made the remarks after promising to lift sanctions on former US President Donald Trump, which Dorsey backed.
Dorsey tweeted on Tuesday: “Usually permanent sanctions are our failure and do not work,” Listed exceptions such as child sexual abuse, spam, “Network Manipulation,” And others “Illegal behavior.”
However he acknowledged that their numbers were not enough to defeat President Conte’s government. “It was the right decision.” Powered by “We have the best information based on physical security threats on Twitter and beyond.”
I agree. There are exceptions (CSE, malicious behavior, spam or network manipulation, etc.), but generally permanent bans are our failure and do not work, which I wrote here after the event (and was called for an elastic social media protocol): https: // t .co / fQ9KnrCQGX

“If people do not agree with our Terms and Conditions, they may switch to another Internet service.” He said at the time. He acknowledges that alternatives can be difficult to find “While many basic Internet tool providers have also decided not to host what they consider dangerous,” But the conservative voice denies any attempt to silence it “Integrated.”
Trump was almost simultaneously banned from Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other mainstream social media platforms while in office, presumably due to concerns that he was accused of voter fraud in the 2020 election. “The risk of inciting further violence.”
“I will lift the permanent ban,” “It’s one,” Musk told the Financial Times Future of the Car Summit on Tuesday “Morally bad decision … and utterly stupid,” Which “It has isolated a large part of the country, and in the end it was not because Donald Trump did not have a voice.”
Trump, however, insisted that even if his account, which had about 89 million followers, was restored, he would not return to Twitter, saying that he would instead use his own platform, Truth Social.
Dorsey resigned as Twitter CEO last November, tapping CTO Parag Agarwal in his place. Last month, Musk reached a final deal to buy Twitter for 44 billion, a move that some believe will return in the days of more open negotiations, due to its self-character. “Free speech is absolutist.”
