Dorsey Admits To Mob-Driven Censorship On Twitter During Heated Section 230 Hearing | Zero Hedge

It’s clear that Twitter’s Jack Dorsey has perhaps unintentionally acknowledged that Twitter’s unofficial moderating system is based simply on whoever shows the most outrage. In response to questioning from Sen. Rick Scott, Dorsey replied:“We don’t have a general policy around misleading information and misinformation… We rely upon people calling that speech out.”

Which seems to be an admission of mob-rule…

In summary, Twitter is effectively letting a small group of politically-motivated users dictate what is truth and what is fake news.

…sounds like a pretty fair system to us.
