Sina Technology News Beijing time on the morning of December 14, it is reported that Twitter co-founder and CEO Jack Dorsey (Jack Dorsey) did not directly mention Elon Musk in today's blog post, but he made it clear that the company he once steered had serious problems then and now.

Mr Dorsey said his comments revolved around the "Twitter Twitter Files"-Mr Musk began publishing a series of Twitter internal documents last week to prove that former Twitter management was biased against conservatives in content reviews.

Mr Dorsey wrote at the beginning of his blog that he believes in three principles: social media must withstand "corporate and government control"; the author is "the only one who can delete his own content"; and "auditing is best achieved through algorithm selection".

"neither the Twitter I led nor the current Twitter met any of these three principles," Dorsey wrote. "

"neither the Twitter I led nor the current Twitter met any of these three principles," Dorsey wrote. "

Trump's account was permanently blocked by Twitter after the "shock incident" on January 6 this year. It was Dorsey who served as Twitter CEO at that time.

Dorsey did not explicitly criticize Musk. He said that when activist investor Elliott Management stepped in to Twitter two years ago, he personally gave up pushing the company in the right direction.

"it's my own fault." "when activist investors bought shares in 2020, I gave up completely," Dorsey wrote. "

Speaking of Twitter's blocking of Trump, Dorsey said he believed that "there is no problem of malicious concealment, and everyone acted on the best information available at the time."

But he admits that "we made a mistake": Twitter would be better off if it were more focused on users' needs rather than looking at things from its own point of view.

In general, social messaging platforms should not delete content or block accounts, because "doing so complicates penalties for important background, learning and illegal activities," Dorsey said.

He came up with the idea of a "social media free and open agreement", which cannot be owned by any individual or company, and only in this way can his principles be truly implemented.

"the problem today is that many companies control both the agreement and the content." "this will eventually lead to whether people can see that something will be controlled by someone," Dorsey wrote. "

Dorsey mentioned Bluesky, a non-profit organization led by Twitter, as well as Mastodon and Matrix. He believes that these emerging projects are expected to put into practice his idea of developing free and open social media agreements. He himself will provide funding for promising projects, starting with $1 million for Signal, an encrypted messaging app.
