Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey says he agrees with Elon Musk that former President Trump should have his Twitter account reinstated. Dorsey was CEO of Twitter when the ban was put in place.
Dorsey called the ban a mistaken “business decision,” and reiterated Musk’s belief that permanent bans are inappropriate in cases outside of illegal activity or spam.
The statements give Musk support to continue dismantling Twitter’s content moderation efforts after he buys the company, which may alter the Twitter experience and advertiser appeal.
