TWITTER CO-FOUNDER APOLOGISES FOR TWITTER – Almost:
Evan Williams, who still sits on the company’s board of directors, recently told The New York Times that he wants to repair the damage he thinks Twitter and the broader Internet have wrought on society in the form of trolls, cyberbullies, live-streamed violence, fake news and – yes – Trump.
“I thought once everybody could speak freely and exchange information and ideas, the world is automatically going to be a better place,” Williams told the Times. “I was wrong about that.”
“If it’s true that he wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Twitter, then yeah, I’m sorry,” he said.
Ah, if only we could have online communities where only nice people could express their views. The left doesn’t support free speech, it only supports “good” speech.
World is a better place when everybody can speak freely and exchange information and ideas, Evan, even though there is always price for everything. For you it’s Trump, for me it’s my blood pressure when yet another seemingly intelligent and successful person doesn’t understand the concept and benefits of free speech.
