“No one deserves to be the target of abuse on Twitter.” Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said.
According to Vanity, Dorsey stated on a conference call with investors, “We haven’t been good enough at ensuring that’s the case, and we need to do better.”
“We are not, and never will be, a platform that shows people only part of what’s happening.” He said. “Abuse is not civil discourse.”
The statement comes after the incident of cyberbullying which attacked Ghostbusters actress Leslie Jones. Journalist Milo Yiannopoulos’ account then get banned permanently by Twitter as he was the one who led the cyberbullying to happen.
“I leave Twitter tonight with tears and a very sad heart. All this cause I did a movie. You can hate the movie but the s**t I got today… wrong” Jones wrote on her Twitter.
Right some moments after Leslie Jones showed her big disappointment, the Twitter CEO then mentioned her, “Hi Leslie, following, please DM me when you have a moment”
The good news is, Jones has got back to Twitter and she even gets a lot of supports as she said on her tweets,
“Welp.. a b**h thought she could stay away. But who else is gonna live tweet Game of Thrones!!” – @Lesdoggg
“Thanks for the love and support I received! Made me feel real special! See you later on @sethmeyers #LoveForLeslieJ” – @Lesdoggg
