toggle caption Drew Angerer/Getty Images Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said on Wednesday he believes tech companies that banned President Donald Trump from various social media platforms was a move that sets a dangerous precedent for a free internet.

‘The right decision‘ is how Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey characterized banning President Donald Trump from his social media platform.

But he lamented that the move was divisive and sets a precedent that Dorsey said is dangerous to a ‘free and open global internet.

In his 13-tweet thread, Dorsey said the ‘offline harm’ posed by Trump’s tweets drove the company to kick the president off of Twitter.

This was the first time the Twitter CEO publicly addressed removing Trump from his platform.

In his meandering Twitter thread, he said a decentralized alternative like that of Bitcoin, the digital currency, would be the best option for a free and open internet.

In explaining his decision to ban President Trump from Twitter he said the ability for companies to shut down users’ accounts ‘will be destructive to the noble purpose and ideals of the open internet.

He said, ‘This moment in time might call for this dynamic, but over the long term it will be destructive to the noble purpose and ideals of the open internet.

Detractors of other major social media companies believe Big Tech, and specifically Twitter and Facebook, need more checks and balances and they need to take more control of harmful messages, not less.
