The co-founder of Twitter, Evan Williams, told The New York Times that he is sorry for creating this social media platform.
Why would this man apologize for creating Twitter?
Because many have argued Twitter is the reason Donald Trump is president.
According to Mashable, just two months ago, Trump told Fox News, “I think that maybe I wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for Twitter, because I get such fake press, such a dishonest press.”
In Williams’ interview, he responded “It’s a very bad thing. Twitter’s role in that. If it’s true that he wouldn’t be president if it weren’t for Twitter, then yeah, I’m sorry.”
So Williams is apologizing because Twitter helped get Trump elected…?
But whether you like Trump or not, the beauty of Twitter is that it takes one person’s words distributed to the world–without censor, filter, spin.
Trump tweeted his 140-characters to the American people. They responded and voted for him.
So, Williams, are you sorry for inventing Twitter because the establishment media cannot spin Trump’s message?
Because the American people wanted to hear what presidential candidates had to say?
Should only certain be able to use Twitter? Only those who have the same political stance as you?
What exactly are you sorry for?
Has Trump’s tweets gone too far?
It has been well noted that “Trump’s use of Twitter has long been the source of criticism, especially now as he holds the highest office in the country. The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this week that Trump’s aides recently held a social media intervention with the president due to concerns his tweets could have political and legal ramifications.”
But, no tweets suggest the end of Trump’s ride on the Twitter train.
