Dorsey Leaves Twitter Behind
We can all celebrate as the censor-prone CEO Jack Dorsey has resigned from Twitter. But the celebration is likely to be short-lived.
Why? Because Dorsey is being replaced by Twitter’s chief technology officer Parag Agrawal, who said in a 2020 interview, “Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment…focus(ing) less on thinking about free speech, but thinking about how the times have changed.” In other words, Agrawal is not only an unconscionable creep, but openly so.
The Quartering puts it more bluntly, “The new guy is said to be far worse.”
Dorsey’s resignation comes as no surprise. Investors have long been clamoring for him to step down. Twitter’s stock prices have dropped about 10 percent over the course of the year while the S & P has enjoyed a 23 percent rise. Here, Steve Turley examines Dorsey’s checkered career.
