‘Why should we believe you now?’
Exiled Hollywood star Rose McGowan has questioned Jack Dorsey’s credibility after the former Twitter CEO claimed the company had taken steps to stop the spread of child pornography on the social media platform. “Why should we believe you now? asked the actress.
On Friday, Jack Dorsey refuted current Twitter owner Elon Musk’s claim that the company “has refused to take action against child exploitation for years.”
“That’s untrue,” Dorsey tweeted, adding, “I don’t know what happened last year. But to say we haven’t acted for years isn’t true. You can give back all my public emails for verification. The company took away my access to email or else I would.”
McGowan didn’t buy Dorsey’s side of the story, noting that Twitter deactivated her account four days after she went public with a sexual assault complaint. “If this is how your Twitter worked, why should we believe you now?”
The actress didn’t elaborate, but she appears to be referring to when Twitter locked her account in 2017 after she said she was raped by Harvey Weinstein and encouraged others to speak out against Hollywood’s culture of silence in the face of violence. sexual misconduct.
And even @jack you deactivated an assault victim’s account (mine) 4 days after I went public. If this is how your Twitter worked, why should we believe you now? @elizableu @Elon Musk @Cernovitch #VF https://t.co/lo5FSrVCni

No, this is not the case.
When Ella Irwin, who now runs Trust & Safety, joined Twitter earlier this year, hardly anyone was working on child safety.
She raised this issue with Ned & Parag, but they denied her endowment request.
I made it a priority immediately.@ellagirwin

Jack Dorsey’s credibility has been seriously called into question in recent days as Elon Musk continues to post internal Twitter files showing the company censored, shadow banned and deleted conservative accounts, including Breitbart News. In 2018, Dorsey testified under oath before Congress that Twitter does not censor or ban conservatives.
It remains unclear what legal repercussions Dorsey will face now that his sworn testimony has been questioned.
As Breitbart News reported, Rose McGowan has repeatedly called out the Silicon Valley giants for trying to take away her First Amendment rights. In 2020, she accused Facebook of deactivating her account after challenging then-presidential candidate Joe Biden, adding that she suspected the censorship was the work of the Democratic Party.
“I’ve been a victim of conspiracies before this one smacks of the Dems,” she said.
