Jack Dorsey has stepped down as CEO of Twitter, the social media site, and alarm bells are going off that his replacement will take the right wing-hating website farther into Orwellian territory.

Reacting to Dorsey’s departure, Bill D’Agostino of Media Research Center says Twitter’s role as an online platform for debate and discussion is symbolic of the culture we are living in.“We’re sort of at a weird place in America right now, where both sides seem to agree that there’s a big problem with social media,” he observes. “Half […]
