New Delhi: The CEO of the social media platform, Jack Dorsey, has admitted to the anti-right-wing views of his team in a recent interview with CNN. “We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is ... is more left-leaning," he said.

Though Dorsey maintained that the company only polices the behaviour of Twitter users rather than content, that does not seem to be the case. The website has often been criticised for allegedly "shadow-banning" its conservative users, where the content of the user is blocked from the site without his/her knowledge.

Twitter’s Indian users felt the burn of the ‘new guidelines’ in 2016 when many prominent Twitter handles got suspended after mocking the Aam Aadmi Party and Arvind Kejriwal. Even ABVP could not escape Twitter’s wrath as reportedly 7 accounts associated with the organisation were suspended.

Several other verified handles raised the question of ethics.

Even apolitical users made a mockery of Dorsey’s stand.

While Twitter may still be teetering to walk the tightrope between freedom of speech and censorship, Dorsey stresses on neutrality saying, "But the real question behind the question is, are we doing something according to political ideology or viewpoints? And we are not. Period.”

Ironically, he faces a possible subpoena from the House Energy and Commerce Committee over allegations of discrimination against conservatives on the platform. Dorsey is also expected to testify next month before the Senate Intelligence Committee on the issue of Russia’s election interference.
