Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey responds after Trump's post on 'big action' against microblogging site

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Thursday said that the labelling two of US President Donald Trump’s tweets with fact checks earlier this week does not make the micro-blogging website an ‘arbiter of truth’.

In a series of tweets, Dorsey explained that Twitter’s “intention is to connect the dots of conflicting statements and show the information in dispute so people can judge for themselves”.

The explanation comes after Facebook CEO, in an interview with Fox News, said the Facebook “should not be an arbiter of truth of everything that people say online".

Trump, too, threatened to take action against the Silicon Valley company.
