An old tweet perhaps then again the CEO of Twitter should know of his own culture in his own company.
The fact that not even a day after the new CEO took office he began too stifle any and all journalism is no surprise. When one observes the leaked audio reported earlier today by Steven Crowder on the Louder with Crowder podcast. In a 2020 Interview at MIT the new CEO stated in no uncertain terms.
Interviewer: “Someone in the audience is also pointing out that your trying to combat disinformation, you also want to protect free speech. As a core value and also in the US as the first amendment. How do you balance those two?”
Parag Argawal: “Our Rule is to not be bound by the first amendment. Our role is to serve a healthier public conversation, and our moves be reflective of the things we believe lead to a healthier public conversation. The kinds of things we do to work on this is worry less on thinking about free speech but instead thinking about how the times have changed. One of the changes today that we see is that speech is easy on the internet. Most people can speak. Our rule is particularly to emphasize is, who can be heard.”
