Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey Refuses to Delete Trump’s Murder Conspiracy Accusations Against Joe Scarborough
Timothy J. Klausutis asked Twitter’s chief executive Jack Dorsey in a New York Times op-ed to remove President Donald Trump’s tweets “alluding to the repeatedly debunked falsehood that my wife [Lori Klausutis] was murdered by her boss, former U.S. Rep. Joe Scarborough” in 2001
However, a Twitter spokeswoman said the tweets would remain (even though the conspiracy was debunked 19 years ago), notes Reuters.
A medical coroner ruled in 2001 that Lori had an undiagnosed heart condition when she fell and hit her head on her desk while working in Scarborough’s Florida congressional office.
Twitter released a vague and meaningless statement to Fox News:
We are deeply sorry about the pain these statements, and the attention they are drawing, are causing the family. We’ve been working to expand existing product features and policies so we can more effectively address things like this going forward, and we hope to have those changes in place shortly.
