Banning President Donald Trump from Twitter was the 'right decision' - Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has said that banning President Donald Trump from Twitter was the 'right decision' but added the ban sets a dangerous precedent.

Dorsey spoke out in series of Tweets on Wednesday musing about the permanent ban Twitter handed down last week after Trump's supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.

'I do not celebrate or feel pride' in the ban, Dorsey wrote, adding 'I believe this was the right decision for Twitter. We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety.' 

'Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all,' he continued.

'Having to take these actions fragment the public conversation. They divide us. They limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning. And sets a precedent I feel is dangerous: the power an individual or corporation has over a part of the global public conversation,' Dorsey wrote.
