On Tuesday, CEO of the micro-blogging giant Twitter Jack Dorsey clearly stated that virtually every tech company situated in Silicon Valley have absolutely failed in every possible sense when it comes to protecting their users from becoming a victim of online abuse.
During an interview with the famous tech journalist Kara Swisher being conducted on the Twitter platform, when Dorsey was asked by Swisher that where he thinks his company stands in terms of technology responsibility, Dorsey said that he would give himself without any sort of doubt a ‘C’ grade when it comes to responsibility.
“We’ve made progress, but it has been scattered and not felt enough, changing the experience hasn’t been meaningful enough and we’ve put most of the burden on the victims of abuse (that’s a huge fail),” the Twitter CEO tweeted during the interview with Swisher.
Both Twitter, as well as Facebook, has faced a huge backlash from their users primarily because of the abusive posts, fake users and inaccurate news stories that prevail on their platform. Twitter for quite a long time now has been investing to a great extent in order to improve what Dorsey terms as the “collective health” of the company.
Recently, the tech billionaire Jack Dorsey said that he is not a big fan of how Twitter encourages and promotes outrageous as well as fragmented conversations on the platform. He further stated that a rather major contributor to such problems is the lack of diversity in the company’s culture.
