Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responded to backlash over his censoring of Rose McGowan by announcing he will be expanding their censorship regime in the name of protecting women.
#WomenBoycottTwitter trended on Friday in response to McGowan's suspension with many women saying they were going to boycott the site. Dorsey reversed McGowan's suspension after 12 hours.
Even though Dorsey silenced McGowan, he interpreted the backlash against his censorship as a call for more censorship.
2/ We prioritized this in 2016. We updated our policies and increased the size of our teams. It wasn't enough.
3/ In 2017 we made it our top priority and made a lot of progress.
4/ Today we saw voices silencing themselves and voices speaking out because we're *still* not doing enough.
5/ We've been working intensely over the past few months and focused today on making some critical decisions.
6/ We decided to take a more aggressive stance in our rules and how we enforce them.
7/ New rules around: unwanted sexual advances, non-consensual nudity, hate symbols, violent groups, and tweets that glorifies violence.
8/ These changes will start rolling out in the next few weeks. More to share next week.
Dorsey's response is quite similar to Michael Moore's in his remarkable capacity for deflection.
Michael Moore, who is BFFs with Weinstein and is actively working together with him on a new anti-Trump film, dodged any responsibility for covering for Weinstein for years and claimed ignorance of his behavior in a lengthy Facebook post on Friday.
Even though Weinstein is Jewish, Moore shifted the blame for his actions onto "all white men" and said the moment should be seized to bring down "white male hierarchy."
