Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has described the ban on Donald Trump as ‘right’ but ‘dangerous’, reports the BBC. In a long thread, the Twitter founder accepted that the move would have consequences for an open and free internet. He described the decision as the right thing to do in the face of ‘extraordinary and untenable circumstances’, but said that ‘a company removing access is different from a government removing access’. Trump has now been banned from Facebook, Snapchat and YouTube. Some leaders, including Angela Merkel of Germany and Andres Manuel López Obrador of Mexico, have criticised the ban.
