Twitter chief says platform ‘does not use political ideology’

Jack Dorsey

Twitter isn’t biased for or against any type of partisan but is working on ways to raise the level of debate on its platform, the company’s CEO will tell a Senate hearing in Washington, D.C., today.

In prepared testimony released Tuesday before a Senate hearing Wednesday, Twitter chief executive officer Jack Dorsey says, “Twitter does not use political ideology to make any decisions, whether related to ranking content on our service or how we enforce our rules.”

Dorsey and other tech titans will be in the U.S. capital on Wednesday to testify in front of the Senate Intelligence Committee, which is still probing Russian interference in the 2016 election, along with the general growing influence of social media to disseminate information.

Dorsey’s testimony comes as some Republicans, including President Donald Trump, are increasingly claiming that social media and other mainstream online platforms are innately biased against conservative voices.
