“Twitter has grown into the most dominant ‘conversation’ platform globally. Jack explained some of the steps being taken to keep those conversations healthy and measures being taken to tackle the menace of fake news,” the Congress President said in a tweet.
The micro-blogging site, that has 336 million users at the global level, is working hard to increase the collective health, openness and civility of dialogue on its platform.
Dorsey arrived in India on his maiden visit last week.
In the wake of the growing criticism over Twitter’s role in the spread of misinformation and fake news as India faces Assembly polls ahead of the 2019 Lok Sabha elections, Dorsey is also expected to meet Union IT Minister Ravi Shankar Prasad.
