Jack Dorsey, the co-founder and CEO of Twitter, recently declared that he will be donating $1 million a year to the encrypted messaging app Signal.
He noted that this grant is part of a larger effort to promote open internet development and make sure that social media is not under the sway of any one entity or group.
In a blog post, Dorsey expressed his worries about the current state of Twitter and its susceptibility to corporate and government control.
Furthermore, he also censured the mistreatment of Twitter’s staff and stated that more such grants to Signal and other entities will be available in the future.
Dorsey revealed his initial plans for Twitter, which involved making the platform invulnerable to outside control and allowing the original author to decide on content removal.
Additionally, he discussed his belief that moderation should be done through algorithmic decision-making.
