Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Resigns; New CEO Will Disregard First Amendment

'Our role is not to be bound by the First Amendment...'

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has resigned his position and the company’s chief technology officer, Parag Agrawal, who has made anti-white comments and promised more speech restrictions on the platform, has taken the job.

Twitter’s stock spiked by about 10 percent when the news broke, but it has since lost those gains.

Dorsey tweeted the resignation email as part of his “one wish” that Twitter will be “the most transparent company in the world.”

Dorsey wrote that he resigned because he feels certain that Agrawal will lead Twitter in the right direction.

“He’s been my first choice for some time given how deeply he understands the company and its needs,” Dorsey wrote in the resignation letter. “Parag has been behind every critical decision that helped turn this company around…My trust in him as our CEO is bone deep.”

Some conservatives celebrated Dorsey’s resignation, though many recognized that Agrawal could be far worse for free speech on Twitter.

Agrawal, in an 11-year-old tweet, wrote that he would no longer distinguish “white people” from “racists.”

Reason’s senior editor Robby Soave said the tweet about white people and racists misses the most serious threat about Agrawal: that he does not believe the First Amendment‘s protections apply to Twitter.
