Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted during an interview with CNN reporter Brian Stelter that Twitter has a “left-leaning” bias, suggested that they do “shadow ban” people, and said that he has not done enough to implement his own “personal objectives” at Twitter.
The interview, set to air on Sunday, comes as the San Francisco based social media company is coming under intense fire over well-documented allegations of bias against Republicans and conservatives.
“Are we doing something according to political ideology or viewpoints? We are not. Period,” Dorsey claimed during the interview, which took place on Friday. “We do not look at content with regards to political viewpoint or ideology. We look at behavior.”
But he went on to say that the social media company needs to remove bias from its service.
“I think we need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is left, is more left-leaning,” Dorsey continued. “We need to remove all bias from how we act and our policies and our enforcement and our tools.”
“I haven’t done enough of, like, articulating my own personal objectives with this service and my own personal objectives in the world,” Dorsey explained.
