'Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey granted an interview to HuffPost, Thursday, where he discussed collaborating with other Big Tech companies on censorship “methods,” expressed respect for conservative activist Laura Loomer’s fight against his own company, and denied sending his beard hair to rapper Azealia Banks.
The first section of the interview, which was conducted by former Gawker staff writer Ashley Feinberg, was made up entirely of Feinberg asking Dorsey why had unfollowed her on Twitter.
“First, I noticed you unfollowed me on Twitter within the past couple of months or so,” declared Feinberg, adding, “Was there a reason why this happened?”
Dorsey later revealed it was because the HuffPost journalist had been repeatedly harassing him via DMs, demanding the Twitter CEO to delete his platform.
Further in, Dorsey denied intentional censorship of conservatives on Twitter.
“I think it would be easy to believe a perspective if you only look at particular things. And you look at actions based on who you follow and whatnot,” claimed Dorsey after being asked why conservatives believe they’re being censored.
“I mean, people follow people that violate our terms of service and who we take action upon, and if you’re only following those people and you’re not following anyone else, you tend to see that and the perspective is strengthened,” the Twitter CEO declared. “As I said in front of Congress, we do make some mistakes where our algorithms can be super aggressive. But do we build bias into our systems? No, it’s not in our policies, it’s not in our enforcement, and it’s not in our algorithms… So the main thing that we’re focused on is how we stay transparent with our actions and continue to be impartial — not neutral, but impartial.”
Dorsey then added that he “reached out to a bunch of people” to consult over the suspension of Infowars’ Alex Jones, including conservative commentator Ali Alexander, who advised Dorsey against suspending Jones.
Dorsey also denied claims that Big Tech companies work together to censor users, despite noting that they “definitely collaborate” with the companies on “methods.”'
