Senator Ted Cruz Grill Dorsey Over Twitter’s Alleged Censorship, Blocking Voter Fraud Tweets

Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, took Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to task over his company’s recent practice of attaching disclaimers about voter fraud to tweets about the subject, claiming that the social media platform takes on the role of a publisher when it does this. Dorsey admitted that he is not an expert on the subject, and insisted that this was simply “linking to a broader conversation” so that users could access more information. Cruz swiftly rejected that explanation. “No, no you’re not. You put up a page that says, quote, ‘voter fraud of any kind is exceedingly rare in the United States.’ That’s not linking to a broader conversation, that’s taking a disputed policy position and you’re a publisher when you’re doing that,” Cruz said.
