Jack Dorsey co-founded the social media giant Twitter which was riddled with problems and scandals until the recent takeover by the world’s richest person, Elon Musk.
The left-wing platform notoriously censored conservatives and even banned President Donald Trump. During Musk’s takeover, he vowed to restore free speech and reinstated Trump on the platform.
Digging deeper, Musk discovered that Twitter was committing a crime for years by refusing to take action on child exploitation.
An investigation by the New York Post found that Twitter refused to remove child porn because it didn’t “violate policies,” according to a lawsuit.
Musk responded to the article, “It is a crime that they refused to take action on child exploitation for years!”
This instantly triggered Twitter co-founder and former CEO Jack Dorsey, who responded “this is false.”
“No, it’s not,” Musk quickly shot back.
Conservative journalist Mike Cernovich said, “You all belong in jail.”

Musk explained the problem further, by saying, “When Ella Irwin, who now runs Trust & Safety, joined Twitter earlier this year, almost no one was working on child safety.”
“She raised this with Ned & Parag, but they rejected her staffing request. I made it top priority immediately.”
“At the same time, Ned was spending millions of dollars on Warriors seats. Super messed up priorities,” Musk continued.
Despite Musk’s incredible progress improving the social platform, President Biden and the Democrats continue to push lies about Musk.
Anti-Trump congressman Adam Schiff claimed that slurs are increasing under Musk.
Schiff wrote, “On Elon Musk’s Twitter, slurs against Black people have tripled, slurs against women are up 33%, slurs against Jewish people are up 61%, and slurs against gay men are up 58%.”
“These numbers are abysmal – and unacceptable,” Schiff added.
The only problem is that Schiff is lying.
“False,” Musk shot back. “Hate speech impressions are actually down by 1/3 for Twitter now vs prior to acquisition.”
