“As I have said before, I do not believe that any permanent ban (with the exception of illegal activities) is right or possible. That’s why we need a protocol that is resistant to higher layers,” said Dorsey, who resigned from his position at Twitter in November 2021. and is currently working as block leader block.

While Dorsey’s thread didn’t name names, it’s possible he’s referring to some of the most controversial Twitter moments that have surfaced amid Musk’s Twitter purchase, including the platform’s decision to ban former President Donald J. Trump from the platform and temporary ban. The New York Post published an article about the laptop of Hunter, the son of US President Joe Biden. Social media giant General Counsel Vijaya Gadde was recently attacked by Internet trolls after Musk posted a meme about her.

Given this memory storm, Dorsey’s words today shed a very soft and dim light on his position on whether controversial figures, even those who spread disinformation, should be allowed on the platform.

“Some things can be fixed right away, while others require rethinking and re-implementation of the entire system. It’s important to me that we receive critical feedback in all its forms, but it’s also important that we have the space and time to consider it. All this must be done publicly,” Dorsey said in the same Twitter thread.

Earlier this week, Dorsey said that “Elon is the only solution I trust … I trust his mission to expand the light of consciousness.” But there’s a tension here: if Dorsey believes in Musk, but Musk tweets memes at the expense of Twitter’s executive team, is Twitter really moving towards becoming more transparent? As Dorsey said, the company needs “space and time to consider” some of the most important feedback. Morale plays a role in recovery.

“What matters is how the service works and operates and how quickly it learns and improves,” Dorsey said in today’s tweet storm. “My biggest mistake was speed. I’m sure at least that part is being looked into and will be fixed.”
