Leaked video reveals Twitter CEO has a ‘much bigger’ plan than Trump ban
Project Veritas released a video recording Thursday of Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey suggesting the company has plans to take further action beyond the removal of President Donald Trump’s Twitter account.
In the video, Dorsey can be heard telling his staff that the ban is going to be much bigger than just Trump’s account.
“We know we are focused on one account right now, but this is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week, and the next few weeks and go on beyond the inauguration,” said Dorsey.
He continued, “So, the focus is certainly on this account and how it ties to real-world violence. But also, we need to think much longer term around how these dynamics play out over time. I don’t believe this is going away anytime soon.”
Trump’s Twitter account was permanently suspended following the violet riot at the U.S. Capitol last week due to “the risk of further incitement of violence.”
More than 70,000 accounts identified as spreading QAnon conspiracy theories, including attorney Sidney Powell and Former United States National Security Advisor Michael Flynn’s accounts, were also shut down.
Dorsey referenced the actions taken against the QAnon accounts, telling his staff it’s part of a “much broader approach that we should be looking at and going deeper on.”
“You know, the U.S. is extremely divided. Our platform is showing that every single day,” Dorsey continued. “And our role is to protect the integrity of that conversation and do what we can to make sure that no one is being harmed based off that. And that is our focus.”
Project Veritas released this clip one day after Dorsey defended Twitter’s decision to permanently suspend Trump’s account, saying that it was the ‘right decision’ but acknowledging that having to take these actions ‘fragment the public conversation’ and ‘divide us.’
James O’Keefe, founder of Project Veritas, told Sean Hannity on Fox News Thursday night that more whistleblowers are coming forward with information after the release of Dorsey’s video.
“It’s kind of creating this revolution of whistleblowing in big tech,” O’Keefe said. “So many are upset and coming forward now. More people are contacting Veritas.”
“Stay tuned. They may be private companies, but they have more power than all three branches of government.”
