Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was refreshingly candid this week about the difficulty of deciphering his social media site's rules or terms of service, a common complaint about various online sites and services, to be fair.
That came in a House Energy & Commerce Committee hearing Wednesday (Sept. 5) on the power of, and problems with edge giants.
Rep. Fred Upton (R-Mich.), former chairman of the committee, asked whether Twitter's rules were clear about what conduct and content were allowed on the site, Dorsey did not dance around the answer.
"I believe if you were to go to our rules today and sit down with a cup of coffee [suggesting it could take a while], you would not be able to understand them."
He said the company needed to do a much better job both with those rules and its terms of service. "We have to make them a whole lot more approachable."
He said Twitter was working on that, but went further to say there was a "whole lot of confusion" about not only the rules but how Twitter was enforcing them.
