Twitter’s co-founder and chief executive is trying to increase transparency and dispel rumors of bias.
Instead, he’s facing criticism for indecision and not acting to stop fake news and what he admitted was a “toxic” environment on Twitter.
On Friday, Jack Dorsey met with CNN’s Brian Stelter, the most recent in a string of appearances with members of the news media. In the interview, Dorsey stressed the importance of transparency and said that he fell short in “articulating [his] personal objectives” with Twitter’s future.
Dorsey also said that Twitter is actively trying to remove bias from its decisions:
… Are we doing something according to political ideology or viewpoints? And we are not. Period. We do not look at content with regards to political viewpoint or ideology. We look at behavior.
