Twitter CEO Says Purge ‘Bigger Than Just One Account’; Will Continue Past Inauguration

'I don't believe this is going away anytime soon...'

In a leaked video, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said he planned a conservative purge following the permanent ban on President Donald Trump‘s account on Jan. 8, Reclaim the Net reported.

“This is going to be much bigger than just one account, and it’s going to go on for much longer than just this day, this week,” Dorsey said in the video obtained and released by Project Veritas. “And the next few weeks and go on beyond the Inauguration.”

Project Veritas said a Twitter employee filmed Dorsey’s statement on the same day as Trump’s suspension, when he said the platform will begin with a focus on “one account right now…and how it ties to real world violence.”

“But also, we need to think much longer term around how these dynamics play out over time,” he said. “I don’t believe this is going away anytime soon. And the moves we’re making today around QAnon for instance—one such example of a much broader approach that we should be looking at and going deeper.”

He said Twitter will give its censorship team “the space and support to focus on the much bigger picture, because it is not going away.”

Dorsey said the United States is “extremely divided” and Twitter’s “role is to protect the integrity of that conversation, and do what we can to make sure that no one is being harmed based off that.”

In a series of tweets on Thursday, Dorsey made a less aggressive statement about his company’s censorship of conservatives, though he said he made “the right decision for Twitter.”
