Twitter’s Jack Dorsey Comments on Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg in an Event

Twitter and Facebook, both have been subjected to a lot of criticism due to the spread of hate speech and misinformation on these platforms with no proper protocols followed to control them.

Apart from the platforms, the CEO of the companies themselves had been through a lot of criticism considering the recent security claims on Facebook itself.

In the Twitter News Summit, the CEO of Twitter did not leave the chance of criticizing Facebook’s CEO Mark Zuckerberg’s speech at Georgetown University.

Jack Dorsey stated that he did not found any amplification and reach in his speech, which is what his critical point was. Apart from it, he stated that speeches and expression are talked about a lot but the reach is somewhat missing from the context.

During the speech at Georgetown University, Mark Zuckerberg talked about their decision not to censor the political ads. He justified this decision of Facebook by stating that Facebook provides a voice and inclusion to everyone on the platform and no one should be left behind to present their views.

In fact, Zuckerberg said that Facebook was founded as a reaction to the Iraq War to let people share their voices and reach out to the world. Dorsey called him out at this point stating that his storytelling has taken away all the genuineness from what others are trying to do.

Dorsey himself has been subjected to a lot of criticism due to the spread of hate and toxic speech on Twitter including the tweets by Donald Trump, which enraged a lot of people around the world. Such incidents has also influenced the credibility of Twitter, which was unmatched at one time.

Upon asking if Dorset will join Facebook’s cryptocurrency association, Libra, he said “hell no”. The reporter, Sara Fischer, posted tweets live from the events about what Dorsey had to say about Facebook and its CEO.
