Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey has been allegedly recorded during an internal meeting saying that the company’s clampdown on inciting violence will go much further.
Twitter did not dispute the veracity of the clip, but said it was essentially the same content as Dorsey publicly tweeted on Wednesday.
He told staff in the clip: ‘You should always feel free to express yourself in whatever format manifestation feels right.
‘We do intend to do the full retro as I said in my note, it is going to take some time.
‘And then the other thing, just to close out a little bit: we are focused on one account right now.
But this is going to be much bigger than just one account.
‘And it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week.
‘And the next few weeks and go on beyond the inauguration. We have to expect that, we have to be ready for that.’
Although the president was permanently barred from Twitter on Friday, with Twitter saying: ‘We have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence.’
The video was shared via JamesOKeefeIII a journalist. @Project_Veritas he wrote: BREAKING: @Twitter Insider Secretly Records CEO @jack Detailing Agenda For Further Political Censorship “We are focused on one account [@realDonaldTrump] right now but this is going to be MUCH BIGGER than just one account & it’s going to go on for much longer…” #ExposeTwitter.
