Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey admitted to CNN’s Brian Stelter on Saturday what has been obvious for some time; Twitter employees have “more left-leaning” bias. And while that’s not exactly a shocker, Dorsey waxed eloquent about the company’s responsibilities, suggesting they operate in a neutral manner and not “according to political ideology or viewpoints.”

“We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is…is more left-leaning,” said Dorsey.

Dorsey’s CNN appearance was the latest stop in Twitter’s rehabilitation road-show after evidence emerged that they had been “shadow banning” conservative users through a variety of methods; including hiding tweets from followers and hiding conservative users from search results.

At the same time, the company has had no qualms about banning people who resonate with conservatives – the latest victim of which was controversial independent journalist Caitlin Johnstone, whose account was 86’d after she tweeted “Friendly public service reminder that John McCain has devoted his entire political career to slaughtering as many human beings as possible at every opportunity, and the world will be improved when he finally dies.”

*poof*
Johnstone disappeared from the platform.

Hours later – after word of her banishment began going viral and she published an article about what happened, Twitter finally restored Johnstone’s account. She’s now testing the fences with more of her unfiltered opinions on McCain, and is “Refusing to be bullied into self-censorship.”

Last week, Twitter suspended Alex Jones for seven days over an “offending tweet” – a link to a video in which the InfoWars host told his followers to prepare “battle rifles” to defend themselves amid a conversation about social media censorship .

And recall in July 2016 that gay conservative Milo Yiannapoulos was permanently banned from Twitter for calling Ghost Busters reboot star Leslie Jones “barely literate,” and tweeting “If at first you don’t succeed (because your work is terrible), play the victim.”
