    Twitter chief Jack Dorsey said this week that he plans to move to Africa for up to six months next year. The tech executive announced the planned move following a month-long trip visiting entrepreneurs on the continent. ďSad to be leaving the continent Ö for now. Africa will define the future (especially the bitcoin one!),Ē Dorsey tweeted from Addis Ababa on Wednesday. ďNot sure where yet, but Iíll be living here for 3-6 months mid 2020. Grateful I was able to experience a small part.Ē Asked for comment, Twitter said in an email: ďWeíve nothing to share beyond Jackís initial...
  • Twitterís Ban on Political Ads Will Only Make Things Worse

    The Daily Signal ^ | November 4, 2019 | John York
    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey recently announced that the social media platform will no longer run political advertisements of any kind. Twitter is a private company and is free to adopt whatever policies it wants, but this decision is not the win for civil discourse and our ďdemocratic infrastructureĒ that Dorsey claims it is. Defending his decision, Dorsey drew a Manichean dichotomy between meritoriously ďearnedĒ media and misleading paid content. That dichotomy is shallow and misleading. While he is right that, absent paid political advertising, ďa political message earns reach when people decide to follow an account or retweet,Ē Dorsey does...

    Goldman Sachs downgraded Twitter on the back of the social media company¬ís dismal earnings performance on Thursday. The firm downgraded the stock to neutral from buy and slashed its price target to $34 from $52. Goldman also lowered its 2019, 2020 and 2021 earnings estimates to ¬ďreflect the company¬ís advertising issues.¬Ē ¬ďAlthough we continue to see signiÔ¨Ācant and growing value in the platform evidenced by broad-based, accelerating DAU growth, the lack of visibility into the remediation of the advertising platform, uncertainty around Twitter¬ís ability to drive broader advertiser demand, and the risk of further multiple compression drive us to lower...
  • Twitter will prevent users from retweeting world leaders who break its rules

    Twitter will restrict how users can interact with tweets from world leaders who violate its rules. The social media company led by CEO Jack Dorsey said in a Tuesday blog post that it will not allow users to like, reply, share or retweet offending tweets, but it will let users quote-tweet them so they can still express their own opinions. The San Francisco-based company has faced a backlash from critics over its hateful conduct and content moderation policies. Some organizations and users believe it should subject the tweets of leaders like President Trump to the same standards as everyone else...

    The official Twitter account of Jack Dorsey, the co-founder of the social media platform, was hacked on Friday. One of the first tweets sent from his "compromised" account was the N-word. Another, sent minutes later, praised Hitler. More than a dozen racist or otherwise offensive original tweets were sent within 20 minutes from the account. Among the tweets was a link to a message board on the chat service Discord. The users in the chat had spelled out "DONALD TRUMP" in emojis on one of the boards. Some of the users in the chat claimed they were attempting to rifle...

    ďJack is thinking about things at a different pace from the rest of us,Ē says Greg Kidd, who has known Jack Dorsey, now 42, since Dorsey was 19. ďJackís pace is slower.Ē Itís an odd thing to say about one of the only two men in history to have ever simultaneously run two multibillion-dollar companies that he cofounded. But Kidd, who was an angel investor in Dorseyís first business, Twitter (TWTR), and one of the earliest advisers on the second, Square (SQ), means the remark as high praise. ďJackís at a slower pace where heís noticing things that the rest...

    Just days away, June 4th will be the 30th Anniversary of the Tiananmen Square Massacre of 1989. With sharp trade disputes between the US and China, this year promises sharper public interest in the incident. In preparation for the Anniversary, Twitter has shut down 32,000 accounts critical of the Chinese Communist Party, accounts originating both in and outside China. Facebook is also said to have taken similar pre-June 4th action against 40,000 accounts. No explanation has been given. Most accounts of the incident acknowledge hundreds of deaths in Tiananmen Square, but some experts claim the actual figure runs into thousands....

    Conservative actor James Woods said on Thursday that he will no longer be using Twitter after the platform suspended him and then deleted a tweet that he refused to take down after the platform received widespread scorn from lawmakers for its continued censorship of conservatives. "Twitter demanded that I rescind my tweet paraphrasing Emerson," Woods said in a statement to The Daily Wire. "It now seems they have chosen to delete that tweet from my account without my permission. Until free speech is allowed on Twitter, I will not be permitted to participate in our democracy with my voice. As...

    Rep. Ilhan Omar spoke to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on the phone this week and demanded to know why the social media platform hadnít deleted a tweet from President Trump that she said incited violence against her. The Twitter boss called Omar on Tuesday to talk about the presidential tweet, which shared a provocative video inter-splicing the Minnesota Democratís comments about 9/11 with footage of the Twin Towers in flames, according to The Washington Post. Omar, who said she experienced a surge in death threats in the days after the April 12 tweet, pressed Dorsey to explain why the company...

    Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says in a new interview that his company's conservative employees are afraid to express their opinions. "We have a lot of conservative-leaning folks in the company as well, and to be honest, they don't feel safe to express their opinions at the company," Dorsey told Recode in an interview published Friday. "They do feel silenced by just the general swirl of what they perceive to be the broader percentage of leanings within the company, and I donít think thatís fair or right," he added, though he did not specify to what extent or how many of...

    President Obama lectured President Trump, accused him of racism, and attempted to take credit for President Trumpís economic miracle. But Barack Obamaís worst lie was his remarks on Benghazi. Barack Obama: ďThe politics of division and paranoia has found a home, unfortunately, in the Republican party. Ö theyíve embraced wild conspiracy theories by those surrounding Benghazi. Or my birth certificate.Ē Benghazi hero Kris Paronto responded to the former president. Kris has not forgotten about the men lost as Obama did nothing.

    Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey has told US lawmakers the company's algorithms have not always been "impartial". He said the platform "unfairly" reduced the visibility of 600,000 accounts, including some members of Congress. But he was unable to immediately say whether a majority of them were Republican, Democratic or otherwise. Mr Dorsey is being questioned by senators over allegations that Twitter censors conservative voices. Several Republicans, including US President Donald Trump, have accused Twitter of bias, which the company denies. "Twitter does not use political ideology to make any decisions, whether related to ranking content on our service or how...

    On Wednesday morning, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg appeared before the Senate Intelligence Committee to take questions from congressmen who spent most of the hearing demanding that the social media giants comply with U.S. government dictates while eschewing cooperation with any other government judged to be "authoritarian." The senators were particularly concerned about foreign interference in U.S. elections. They wanted the social media companies to take firmer steps to prevent non-citizens from attempting to sway public opinion by creating fake accounts, spreading misinformation, or buying political ads...
