The reason I acquired Twitter is because it isimportant to the future of civilization to havea common digital town square, where a widerange of beliefs can be debated in a healthymanner, without resorting to violence. Thereis currently great danger that social mediawill splinter into far right wing and far leftwing echo chambers that generate morehate and divide our society.
In the relentless pursuit of clicks, much oftraditional media has fueled and catered tothose polarized extremes, as they believethat is what brings in the money, but, in doingso, the opportunity for dialogue is lost.That is why I bought Twitter. I didn't do itbecause it would be easy. I didn't do it tomake more money. I did it to try to helphumanity, whom I love. And I do so withhumility, recognizing that failure in pursuingthis goal, despite our best efforts, is a veryreal possibility.That said, Twitter obviously cannot become afree-for-all hellscape, where anything can besaid with no consequences!
Fundamentally, Twitter aspires to be themost respected advertising platform in theworld that strengthens your brand and growsyour enterprise. To everyone who haspartnered with us, I thank you. Let us buildsomething extraordinary together.
During a weekend campaign rally in Georgia, Obama acknowledged Walker's status as a great football player but questioned what other qualities he had that made him worthy of being a United States senator.
"Some of you may not remember, but Herschel Walker was a heck of a football player... does that make him the best person to represent you?" Obama asked the crowd. "Let's say you're at the airport and you see Walker and you say, 'Hey, there's Herschel, Heisman winner. Let's have him fly the plane!'"
I wouldn't be so sure that one of Walker's alter personalities - he's admitted to having had about a dozen - has developed so he can actually fly an airplane. Either that of he has an honorary pilot license.
