WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Internet Accountability Project, issued the following statement on Jack Dorsey’s departure from his role as the CEO of Twitter.
“This is an opportunity for a change in culture at Twitter that respects the principles of free speech and due process on its platform. Under the leadership of Jack Dorsey, Twitter has been one of the most egregious proponents of censorship and illiberalism in American democracy. This change in leadership presents Twitter with the opportunity for a change in culture that favors individual expression and corporate political neutrality. Platforms like Twitter are the public squares of the 21st century and are critical to individuals’ ability to engage in open and free political debate. Big Tech and social media platforms should not be afforded Section 230 immunity if they continue to act as publishers with their censorship of political content with which they disagree.”Mike Davis, Founder and President of the Internet Accountability Project
