Here’s an interesting social media faux pas: Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had his own Twitter account suspended late Tuesday.
Dorsey, who co-founded Twitter a decade ago and returned as CEO last year, posted this tweet Tuesday: “just setting up my twttr…again (account suspension was an internal mistake).”
That’s a play on the social network’s first tweet, which he posted in March 2006: “just setting up my twttr.”
The event is ironic in that the Twitter has been been cracking down on hate speech; users have often complained that the social network is slow to respond to complaints of hate speech, harassment and abuse.
Last week, Twitter suspended many accounts associated with the alt-right movement, a loosely organized group that supports white supremacism and white nationalism. Last week, Dorsey also apologized when an advertisement for a white supremacist group appeared on the service. Twitter took it down within an hour, the company said.
