‘Free Speech’? YOU LIARS! An OPEN LETTER TO $TWTR’s Co-CEOs @Jack & @DeRay
Charles C. Johnson writes:
Jack disclosed that he took time off from working for Square and serving as then-Chairman of Twitter in 2014 to return to his hometown of St. Louis, Missouri to participate in the protests against the (legally justified) killing of Michael Brown in Ferguson.
It was there that he met Deray and a “friendship” was formed that led to Deray being invited to eat with Jack’s family and eventually take an active role in influencing how Twitter operates.
Jack told the Recode audience that Deray has been invited into Twitter headquarters to tell Twitter engineers and managers how to alter the product to meet the needs of his so-called “activism” and to direct the company on how it can become more “diverse.”
