The tweet above is the first in a thread. I’m posting the text of the other tweets below:
I love @twitter, the company and service, but right now we are making the wrong decisions. Everyone at Twitter passionately wants to make the world better.
We want to do it by bringing people together and encouraging constructive, fun, intelligent conversation. We want Twitter to be a megaphone for the voices that need it most.
Many, many people across several orgs have done a great amount of fantastic work towards this. I believe leadership truly have their hearts in the right place and genuinely want Twitter to be a safe place, but right now leadership is failing us.
We are not a government. We do not need to be neutral. The feeling that we are making the tough, right call by remaining neutral is wrong. Our inaction is suppressing voices – disabling conversation.
It seems that Jared is not pleased with his boss’ decision to allow Alex Jones to remain on Twitter.
Let’s be clear here: Jones is not accused of harassing other Twitter users. He is accused of expressing ideas that some people find offensive. Even though these ideas are not being forced upon anyone, the fascist SJW mob claims the right to suppress them.
Way back when I was in college I learned about the “marketplace of ideas” and the maxim that “The remedy for bad speech is more speech.” Many colleges today are teaching kids about “hate speech” which they claim is not protected and must be eliminated.
The problem is that social justice warriors define hate speech” as “Anything we don’t like” and they don’t like much of anything. They want to censor everybody else, and they are willing to use violence to do it.
And they think that because they are using private companies to do their dirty work that it is all okey-dokey. It might be legal, but it certainly isn’t okay.
