Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey makes stunning admission about ‘left-leaning’ bias

"We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is left - more left-leaning", he said. 'But the real question behind the question is, are we doing something according to political ideology or viewpoints? "I think we need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is left, is more left-leaning", he says.

Twitter has been accused of shadow-banning many conservative voices and comments, and recently President Donald Trump said his administration won't allow the practice to continue.

Shadow banning is the act of blocking a user or their content from an online community without being apparent to the user.

He explained that Twitter's definition of "shadow banning" is "hiding tweets from everyone without that person [who published the tweet] knowing about it".


"We do not look at content with regards to political viewpoint or ideology", @Jack told me.

For example, the platform banned InfoWars' host and conspiracy theorist Alex Jones' account this week after receiving complaints that his content was inciting violence. "We are not. Period", Dorsey claimed during the interview, which took place on Friday.

Unsurprisingly, the actions incited the right to raise questions of political bias and freedom of speech. It will change peoples' approach.

On the other hand, some Democrats also want Dorsey to testify due to their interest of possible Russian activity on the platform during the 2016 election.
