Twitter CEO's statement becomes controversial
Twitter's chief executive Jack Dorsey has said that the employees working for the micro-blogging site are more left-leaning. The statement has drawn severe flak, especially from those who identify themselves as Right-wingers. This controversial statement came in the wake of US President Trump saying that Twitter often resorts to “shadow banning” of conservative voices. And Trump is not wrong.
Anti-Jack outrage has come from across the world. In India, pro-BJP voices have pooh-poohed the Twitter co-founder for openly admitting to tolerating bias. They are of the view that many Right-wing accounts have been suspended on the pretext of not respecting Twitter guidelines. On the other hand, they say, Leftists preaching hatred have been excused.
Maya Kosoff, a Vanity Fair columnist said, "In admitting to his “left-leaning” bias, Jack Dorsey effectively handed conservatives more ammunition in their ongoing bad-faith "censorship" crusade, perpetuating the cycle that forces him to continually tiptoe around them"
