Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on whether platform censors users: 'Absolutely not' (Today Show)

Twitter founder and chief executive Jack Dorsey insists his social media platform does not censor user content, despite suspicion suggesting otherwise.

"Absolutely not," he told TODAY's Matt Lauer during an interview Friday marking the company's 10th anniversary. "Twitter has always been about controls. People can follow who they want, and it's our job to make sure they see the most important things."

A decade after Dorsey sent the first-ever tweet ("Just setting up my Twitter"), the platform now boasts 320 million active users, all of whom have the freedom to express themselves within a 140-character limit.
