Square scoops up Tidal
"News in the streaming music business. Recently as financial tech companies square announced a deal to acquire the majority ownership of the music streaming service title as part of the deal according to the associated press square will pay two hundred ninety seven million dollars in cash and stock for title jay z. Who helped start. The streaming service will be named two squares board of directors and he is well as other artists who currently own shares entitle will stay on stakeholders now title has presented itself as an artist friendly alternative to other music streamer square ceo. Jack dorsey who also happens to run twitter. Said they'll come up with new ways for artists to support their work. Now mike i know that you have been a title subscriber for a long time. What's that experience like compared to some other services like spotify or apple music. Yeah well. I wrote about title backman. Jay z created. his artists. consortium overseeing The service back in two thousand fifteen and got the got the service back up and running with a relaunch and i became a subscriber. Right after that I like to support any business. Effort that provides higher fidelity stream music most streaming services deliver. Mp three quality level which can sound brittle just not great It doesn't matter if you're listening on cheap headphones or anything but if you're pipe it out to a good set of headphones you've got speakers from around your computer. Orienteer- home Sound system or if you're downloading music onto your phone or whatever and then putting in the car i mean you just need better quality music and titled gives you at least cd quality or better but there's always been this concern about titles ability to survive long term against spotify another services. I mean i like the experience the software and everything that title has comparable to spotify and apple music. I use all those services. I also use amazon But titled i think probably is my favorite This deal square should help titles ability to survive. You know Because you know squares is a pretty big company Compared to title Meanwhile we've seen spotify announced its own plans to make higher fidelity music available in the near future and amazon music has high risk streaming. So just having titling business seems to be good for music lovers you know and consumers and if square is going to help do more for artists. I think it's all good. And it almost sounds like title was ahead of the game now because now that spotify amazon music or introducing their own hi rez streaming options title. Almost feels like they are way ahead of the game on this. It's really interesting obviously. Didn't start in the us And it wasn't issues. You know once titled control. Jay z and appeal title. Got to look at the books. They were upset because i as many users as was supposed to be there when it started. But there's as the as the cd died off and this is as you know the vinyl the vinyl rebirth or whatever as was kind of growing you had this issue where the services are launching with not a lot of you know bandwidth so you would get these low risk sounding services and you know there is consumer there are consumers that wanna pay more title. It costs nineteen ninety nine a month for the higher quality streams. But you know if you're not playing albums and you're not playing cds whatever and that's the way you listen to music. It's certainly worth it in my

Wednesday that people removed from its platform are not allowed to come back and that applies to president donald trump. Even if he ran for office again. All right let's talk a little bit more about what twitter is planning jack dorsey. He's been talking a lot about decentralisation over the past couple of months what did he say. This time scott feels like every time i'm on the show. There's something about his little idea but on this same call with investors on tuesday twitter ceo. Jack dorsey explained how it's internet project or internal project rather called blue sky and this something. He first announced wave back in december of two thousand nineteen Could create a decentralized social network to give people more choice over their twitter twitter experience Dorsey said twitter might create multiple rhythms for you to choose from offer them alongside those made by others a sort of marketplace on a lot of detail beyond that but dorsey feels Choice like this would not only help out business. But dr more people into participating in social media in the first place Decentralisation could also help twitter address concerns about moderation neutrality. all that kind of stuff Pretty fascinating idea I i still hope he does it with partners. And not just a a twitter store with algorithm skins. Well i mean it sounds like it's it's a combination of both the way twitter sees it happening. The company itself would say all right. You might want this experience. We have enough user feedback to know that some users are frustrated with the kind of stock twitter experience and using hashtags and maybe Filtering out certain keywords or searching for users or topics isn't enough for you you want twitter built a certain way and we can do that for you but then the company saying also third party developers might have some really great ideas and we welcome those algorithms as well as long as you know people wanted that. Could this be something that people would potentially pay for in the future. I would think yes. Yeah although i mean his focus on decentralisation implies that this would be something out in the wild right to the for longtime twitter's been talking about maybe we'll partner up with an existing decentralized solution which there are a few out there like mastodon. And i think that's a really really interesting way to approach this to say what if we decentralized twitter and differentiated twitter is just one of the better ways to talk with folks but like you said scott. He thinks that would help drive more people into participating if there was a federation so to speak that mastodon is that right now but twitter isn't part of mastodon so you don't have enough people using it so it doesn't get that momentum that it needs if twitter gets behind something like that whether it's mastodon or something else then suddenly it's got momentum and if you could say like well what i would like is a more environmental spin on this. I want a more libertarian. Spin you know wanted to promote things that are more about molecular biology promote scientists. I want i want to have a spiritual issues in christianity. Promoted more you you could have that and still everybody be participating in the same network and to his point about moderation neutrality. If you're the one picking the algorithm then you might have issues with how that particular algorithm works. But there'd be less burden on twitter or any other participant to be the person in charge of deciding what gets promoted and what doesn't because you'd have a lot of different approaches to it

Social-Media Companies Took an Aggressive Stance During the Election. Will It Continue?
"We heard leading up to the election was the role of social media companies, particularly how they monitor political discourse. That's the subject of a story by Emily Glaser TECH In Politics reporter for The Wall Street Journal. She joins us now. Thanks for joining us. I'm having So the headline of your story talks about social media companies and the aggressive stance they took. Let's start with that. How would you characterize that? Companies have been doing more and more to regulate political content over the last year or so, but we really thought and pick it up. During election weakened right beforehand, Twitter took a couple of moves to limit the spread of viral content on this platform, and to stop the spread of misinformation on Facebook and Google, Very Facebook and Twitter have been looking more moved to Rabel Post that might be misreading a pulse and then YouTube ultimate for their platforms down, wearing content back of the building, But mental election week where we saw that happening, built throttle Twitter with Regularly labeling President Trump's tweet that had an accurate information about the election and that you've been picked down some groups. What was the justification for the stepped up effort? The air in a bit of a tough position because there isn't a lot of regulation on content, moderation. So the second they find themselves calling the moves in the shop, and they don't always do it consistently, but it because there was a sense that they really wanted to have accurate information out about the recollection and President Trump had been treating Herman thank the election was rigged Question of mail in ballots and other measures. There was an effort that these tech companies had to take matters into their own hands and effort to try to prevent the spread of misinformation, inaccurate information getting out to their hundreds of millions of users. One of the things you wrote, is that the companies are being put in a position to determine what they believe is true. And what is not, in a sense, how comfortable were these companies with that approach? Not very initially backed her shore. You know, they look, CEO Mark Zuckerberg has been talking a lot about the free speech and how that's very important to him. He said that quite frequently, but we both him on. Other tech executives, including Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey consistently speak about the political content on their platforms as it got closer and closer to the U. S election, and I think it finally had a turning point in the election week. I'm certainly after The Associated Press and other media outlets called the presidential race for from the vice President Joe Biden, now president elect, and we've yet to see President Trump. Conceded the race. And so even though for some, the election is over on the social platforms, it is still happening, and they're still trying to trying to figure out what moves they need to make so that their users are getting accurate information. Well, thanks for the lead up to that, because what the process now I guess where do they go from here? Well, we've reported today that Facebook and Google plan to continue banning political ads under platforms several weeks to prevent confusion about election. Results. That's according to people familiar with the matter in an e mail that we reviewed. They actually told advertisers and email Wednesday morning that it would continue the postelection ban on political ads for another month, and I'll just quote they said quote, while multiple sources have protected presidential winner. We still believe it's important to help prevent confusion or abuse on our platform. I might also add that Twitter's measures to limit the spread of ire ality are so continuing and our understanding is with Brazil municipal elections coming up later this month there no plan to On teams those measures yet and what I think we're all waiting for How long these changes that you need the platform that means specifically around addressing her algorithms and pulling down spread of potentially viral information, and it doesn't look like anything is immediate from our reporting, but they're also Not necessarily permanent move because of the resources, the manpower and on the fact that usually these companies take global approach isn't and this isn't a global post right now. It's pretty specific to the US election. I was gonna ask you when you when these companies take a look at monitoring this type of content isn't a breakdown equally of human resource is and computer algorithms to one does one way outweigh the other Generally, how does that work? What a great question. I wish I had a perfect answer for that. But we actually don't know too much because the companies don't share a whole lot about exactly what they're doing on the back end. That's something that a lot of disinformation researchers who are eager to try to measure whether you know their labels have much impact or weather slowing down the fire ality or changing algorithms. You know how that works, and whether it's helpful or not. And we can't really peek under the hood. Yet we did see the book put out a post earlier this week where it actually said 6% of their users information political on their platform, and it was the first time folks have seen that so we got kind of drips and drabs. Every now and then. Twitter has a little it does share it. If the FBI's the researchers can be a little bit more there. But generally we don't know the specifics of the moves that they're taking and how they were precisely. And so there isn't that much out there for the public, or even researchers who specialized on this topic to see or measure So one of the trends stemming from the election in light of what you're talking about is a growth in the interests of the social media site parlor and similar types of sites. What's the interest there? Why is their attention being paid to these sites? Well. Parlor was started about two years ago. And I kind of picture of itself is a free speech platform. We saw folks that were Trump supporters move over there, including a number of Republican lawmakers like Senator has head crews and others earlier this year, and it got even more attention when there was some They're reporting that President Trump and his campaign had talked about whether they could shift over there, giving the additional move that Twitter has been making soon after they started labelling his post in the middle of this year. So recently, parlor was actually one of the top. Download the free app that pretty much exploded in the past couple days. And at one point a few days ago. The platform is actually down because so much usage and so we're seeing a number of people move over the parlour and other friends, social media networks who feel that they are either being censored or that there isn't a natural flow of speech, and they can't They want to be able to say what they want to say and do what they want to Dio. And find that they might be moving other popular to get their. However, I would note that these platforms yourself action of the size of Facebook and Twitter. They don't have the same security measures, and so there's a lot to be desired. But there's

3 social media CEOs face grilling by GOP senators on bias
"Today facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey and center Chai's CEO of Google and Youtube owner alphabet have been asked to testify before the Senate Commerce. Committee. They've been invited by the Republican led panel to answer questions about how their platforms deal with political content and ads joining me on what to expect is our tech policy reporter Ryan Tracy. Ryan. Thanks so much for being here. Good Morning. Thanks for having me. Okay. So it's just a week before the election and all of A. Sudden, the heads of the top social media platforms are coming to Washington. What was the impetus behind the sudden invite? Well, it was a surprise when we first heard that the committee wanted to see is to testify it was kind of unlike what we saw in the house over the past year and a half where the antitrust subcommittee investigated these companies and went back and forth for a while this came together in less than a week. There was less than a week between when they. Were invited and when the committee threatened to subpoena them to come and it was clear that the committee wanted them to come before the election and so I think it's fair to have read into that. That lawmakers see these companies as playing a really really important role right now and want to sort of oversee that role. Let's talk about what this hearing is going to focus on section two thirty of the Nineteen ninety-six Communications Decency Act. We've talked about this act in the past, but can you just give us a refresher wise it on the line right now. Sure said, the topic of the hearing is section two thirty. That's the law that gives big online platforms and small ones actually as well. Immunity from lawsuits when users post content on their sites, it also gives them immunity when they take down content or when they moderate content, and that's been viewed as a really important law for these companies to be able to develop. And grow their user base without the threat of lawsuits. Around every corner that being said, it's also getting a lot of scrutiny these days both Democrats and Republicans are wondering whether given how powerful these tech companies have become. They still deserve such a broad legal immunity, and so that's going to be a big topic of discussion at this hearing is the fact that this is taking place right before the election important for this conversation. Yeah absolutely I mean first of all, there's going to be a debate about at this hearing about how serious each party is about wanting to reform section to thirty Democrats will surely point out that. Republicans are holding this hearing before the election and that looks like perhaps an effort to influence the way facebook and twitter deal with political content over the next week and and even. After the election as well So you'll have that kind of going on in the background it also really it's kind of amazing to see this happening just six days before. November third because you know if you'd looked back earlier this year, this is exactly where facebook and twitter and Google did not want to be right that they do not want to be the center of conversation. Around this election, they had a really bad experience with that four years ago, and you know despite their efforts to get things under control this time to be more aware of the potential pitfalls around misinformation around you know things that candidates might say or that users might post despite all those efforts here they are again kind of at the center of the conversation and it just shows how central they've become to our discourse. Okay. So let's break it down a little bit. What position do we expect Republicans to take in this hearing? Yes. So Republicans are very likely to bring up they view as a bias on social media by the. Social media platforms, they see that when twitter and facebook, for example, took action against the new. York. Post stories about the Biden family in recent weeks that they were doing that with a liberal bias they think that Silicon Valley operates that way, and so we're starting to hear a lot of those types of accusations. We also expect the CEO's to push back on that as they have in the past and say that you know what they're trying to strike a balance and they're not leaving up content or taking down content with regard to one political party or another, but rather with regard to these sort of nonpartisan policies that they've tried to develop. Now, these companies have actually taken a lot of very different steps ahead of the election. Is it fair to even put all of them in the same category or are they going to be speaking to them individually about the separate efforts that they've taken? Will you're right I mean once again to the details there definitely are differences between these companies certainly, they all generally have gotten more active since twenty six. More willing to kind of step in and put a thumb on the scale when they they think it's necessary. But you know twitter for example, handled the New York Post stories by blocking sharing of a link to the stories facebook didn't do that facebook. said, it wanted its third party fact checkers to look at the stories, and while that was happening, it would slow the spread of those stories on his platforms. So there's a lot of shades of gray certainly with these companies and it'll be interesting to see how lawmakers treat them whether one of them comes out ahead or behind certainly with respect to again what we've seen with. The stories about Joe. Biden in recent days twitter print taking the brunt of that because they have taken the most. Drastic action in response to it. So we've talked a little bit about the questions. Republicans are likely to ask in this hearing. What about the Democrats Will Democrats main concern is the spread of false information on social media and we expect them to ask about that. We expect them to push back against the accusations of anti-conservative by that Republicans are going to make and so in that sense at least the Tuxedos, I'll have a friend in the room because Democrats will certainly back them on their. Their denials of those claims there could be other issues brought up for example, Google was the target of an antitrust lawsuit. Recently, we could see lawmakers ask about that on both sides of the Aisle Senator Maria Cantwell who was the top Democrat on the committee put out a report this week where she criticized these companies specifically facebook and Google for endangering local news organizations given the way that they treat content created by local news

"ceo jack dorsey" Discussed on WCBM 680 AM
"Jack Dorsey is just behaving as Joe Biden press secretary for all of the oligarch who think they can get away with this. I will simply say that winter is coming.

Yes, it's our number two with the morning drive PC and Elliot is the Internet. On the social media buzz with the spiking of the New York Post story on the shutting down of accounts just review which accounts have been shut down or locked out. We have the New York Post itself again, one of the largest newspapers circulations in the country founded by Alexander Hamilton. Way many moons ago. We have the White House press secretary. We have the House Judiciary Committee. We have a Senate committee also have been locked out from not being allowed to post anything about politico reports they one of their reporters tried actually post a link to the story.

CEO Jack Dorsey and hopefully Mark Zuckerberg as well, inviting him to testify next week. Andi should and issue here is The section to 30 of the Communications Act, which gives liability to platforms like Facebook and Twitter and other social media from liability protection. You mean liability protection from right suits? There's a third party that wants to sue them for something that was on their platform they have, just like a big farmer has From vaccine lawsuits. They give them some immunity. Well, that's if you're an actual platform like parlor is which they will publish. They will allow any of their Self on the platform, but Facebook and Twitter now they've become publishers. They become like newspapers and TV stations and radio stations. And with that comes responsibility. And responsibility is to make sure that you're being evenhanded and you're not being slanders or libelous because if you do, then that would be a problem for you. President yesterday. Fact address this issue rather directly. He was, I guess, on the phone on this one. No, no. Here's the rally yesterday afternoon, and he talked about big Tech and what we call section 2 30. The big tech persists in coordination with the mainstream media way must immediately stripped them of their section. 2 30 protection. And that would take care of it. Ted Cruz was livid about this when he and a number of other Republican senators gathered yesterday midday. You say this is what's going to be happening, and he said, This is completely unacceptable Toe have this kind of big tech interference. I don't know if these New York Post stories are true or not. Those are questions. Vice President.

"Just after that in a very similar way that we've seen in in previous weeks there was a negative reaction so if we have any clear indication that this is actually coming out soon we could see markets dropped dropping a little bit again Philly pay they are of course companies going there to try and bring some capital back home who's been asking for some money over there well there's a lot of people looking for money around here for sure Youssef and it's not just companies we have governments doing that as well for example was JC the Brazilian government just as they used to do back in some follow in Rio and the president was here both Sinatra was here and they announced that the agreed with the P. I have to say that the Saudis will be investing ten billion dollars in Brazil also not a said that he wants to see that money being directed to infrastructure to that sanitation to areas within the the Brazilian markets that include tourism for example but that's being flagged by the Brazilians not by the Saudi government it's important to say then we had yesterday up in a with several African leaders including those off Nigeria off booking a false off call goal they were clear in their message that the one to treat more with the goals they want to see more investments coming from this part of the road to different parts of Africa they see that there is potential for the for trade and for investments to get back to how it was a few hundred years ago which I thought it was quite meaningful so this was a very very interesting event here in Riyadh with a lot of important prominent analyst bankers investors from both the big gold them from outside of the region so I'm sure we should hear reaction and a lot of news on the coming days after the meetings that happened here yeah lots of news lots of speculation and interesting theorizing there thank you so much for the paper check our markets in equities reporter now Twitter is banning all political advertising on its platform starting November twenty second CEO Jack Dorsey says the movie is about stopping campaigns paying for reach not limiting their free expression Twitter's ban covers ads for specific political candidates as well as broader issue based lobbies they'll be few exceptions including allowing ads in support of voter registration but speaking exclusively to Bloomberg earlier Facebook's Sheryl Sandberg said it would not be doing the same we're not doing it because of the money this is less than one percent of our revenue in the revenue is not with the controversy but what mark said is that we believe in free expression we believe in political speech in ads can be an important part of that we were really focused I think we are leading is on transparency we put out an ad library we now announced a presidential adds tracker which means that you can see any add anyone is running who's a political candidate anywhere in the US but you were in the world even if it's not targeted at you and Jack kind of transparency we think is really important to people understanding he also talked about investing investing in protection one of the things we talked about on our earnings call just now is the size of the investments were making prepared for twenty twenty working with election commissions all over the world hiring engineers using machine using human reviewers really doing what we can to make sure people are kept safe so when trying to decide to go the opposite direction does that make you question your decision or you so stop by the fundamental reasoning and transparency you can bring well mark is set on the call that you know we thought about this for years and certainly we've been thinking about it now and we fundamentally believe that political ads are an important part of the dialogue and can be important against incumbents can be important for news views but we also believe that free expression across the board is something that we stand for as a company and people all over the world are using that certainly politicians are using that people are using it and that's how you see that's how you see our growth continuing that so more a little bit about politicians because it's going to be a tough year in terms of regulatory scrutiny do you worry about talk of the business model being under attack how do you see your role in educating particularly those on Capitol Hill about this well I think we really have to help people understand that targeted ads and privacy or not at odds we can do both so if you're an advertiser here this biggest company in the world or the smallest company and we have seven million advertisers a hundred and forty million businesses using our services and you want to show an ad to you know women in their fifties that's me who live in California we take the admission went to that person we give you back aggregated results we can do very good ads targeting that really makes that's good for people and really helps advertisers reach the right person without violating privacy and not something I think we need to do a much better job of explaining and indeed the integration that you're doing at the moment you talk about the focus on the family of Abbas whether it be of course Facebook Instagram what size you also looking to put them together in the back and include them do you think this is going to help in terms of ensuring that you do remain one whole business well that's not where this is coming from we were doing that before what we really want to do is.

We've heard a number of guests on the show that are from outside of the US coming to see us. They really CCS is is there a large platform. The with the us though, being succumbing so large it gets harder and harder though for companies to get above the noise level because everybody's announcing I think it got up plan. Your shell attendees have to plan their show exhibitors have to plan their show media do because we're costs three different venues, right? So the Las Vegas convention center, the sands expo center, and then the RIF our space program, which haven't even talked about all other section of the south. But we do try to segmented into these marketplaces. See, you know, that all of the health tech devices are in one place all of the auto exhibitor north hall. Right. So you need to plan your day, and you need to set up your immune. It's just you can have a great show. If you use your time wisely, right? Well, it's interesting gives you. Are you have a regular column in Forbes magazine, right though? I should've been smarter about those ten years ago when I registered as media one time, I put my really mail address the system. So every company has me as a reporter. So starting thanksgiving is a reporter your mailbox just explodes for a lot of these companies, though, they just think they can send a press release out. And that and that's and that's their launch. I think well, I mean, we see it. You have to be creative in how you market people and reach people you there are. There's something about the serendipity of the show writing this sometimes walking around you'll just like fine. The most. There are companies that are really clever and creative and how they market themselves. I mean, Google everybody knows what they're doing others. Incredible. And and make it makes a difference that you look at that exhibit space in it just looks like nothing you've ever seen before leaves a Mark. That ride is an awesome way the capture people's attention press set period of time as they're going through and tell the Google story just to give you context. This is a two story building. I'm sitting here. Looking out the window the studios right onto the builder, but it literally is an amusement ride your in a two person capsule on a roller coaster like you're like you're a Disneyland. It takes you from room to room to room and tells the Google story right in the line 'cause we can center and looked at the line. The line is never been less than ninety minutes to get in since the opening of the show, but you don't have to be a Google to have a successful show. There's a company called Benji lock. Started by a guy named Robbie cabal his team member. He's a great guy. He start he moved to the United States. He. Had some like a down on his luck story started going to the gym to sort of take some ownership back over his life. And realized you needed a better Jim lock. And he wanted an easier. Jim lock. So he created the guy who as I product he created a lot the unlock with some friends, and he got us based in Eureka park last year. Maybe two years, I think was last year and the shark tank executives walked through saw him brought him on the show and Kevin O'Leary the shark tank shark site loved it invested in it, and he's now in know working together. The product is now available on QVC available at multiple like ace, hardware and other retailers. They're working on version two. It just you know, if your idea is great and simple and clean and easy to explain like that goes a long way to. It is around the polling the story. Some of some of the companies you walk around here, and you a ten minute conversation. You still haven't figured out what it is. They do right. It is about keeping it simple. And keeping it clear. So what are some of the we talked a little bit about you guys are really sticklers for the numbers that you're gonna you'll release the number in the sprinting on the x while bound. I can tell you at least from last year to this year. Definitely the energy level seems to have clearly stepped up here in intensity. What other steps can you share with us from the from the show here? Well, we have sixty five hundred members of the media here, which is awesome. About a third of our attendees are international. Great staff for us one area the show floor that we haven't talked about the draft about twenty five thousand people is our c- space area over at the aria, and that's for marketers and the brand and advertising community and we've always coupled with this year with our sports zone. So it's it's next generation. Partnerships is talking about building stadiums to improve the fan experience. We're taking that how to Martin, you know, we have a we had a whole CMO conference back over there. The lot of the companies here is he s you know, by their brands how to keep those brands engaging and how to you know, ran loyalty in reaching new audiences is a real challenge. So over on our sports on stage. We had a big announcement with Twitter's CEO Jack Dorsey and the head of the NBA, Adam silver, silver. They announced that they're going to start not just live streaming NBA games. But they're gonna live stream them on Twitter. And then fans can vote on which player they want to see the game through like a focus on one player for the second half of the game. So it's like fan engagement, you say, I wanna watch, you know. So i'm. My husband's sitting here, and he would just like name a basketball player. That's right, whoever that is. From the wizards. Yeah. And then you'll watch the game from Steph Curry's perspective for the second half. Like, that's really cool and Mike. You know, again, it's all about like personalization Bill. Some you know, how technology like Twitter can really drive community building and fan engagement things Everett's he space, and that's actually the big one is we have not made it over to the area. The problem is now getting around Las Vegas could be a real. Interesting challenge. Given the Crawford in what's going on. What other interesting companies? Seen here at the show that we should know about where I want to go after this is an I love this. I don't understand. But when it does I'm going to walk over to the Sony booth. I was told by a reporter that they have a high end audio experience that made him cry. The high residue has been you know, we've seen high residue at the shell MP threes, and the quality of sound is actually degraded over the years. Right. So it's much more portable. It's easier to take it with you on the go your whole record catalogue, but doesn't under sow we've lost some sound quality. And there is a movement initiative brings that back so to bring it back in high resolution, I don't know whether what Sony you're showing his high Rosado, but I want to go to last year. I tried on a pair of like hundred thousand dollar headphones. Amazing it sounded graded probably being in a symphony hall. But this is apparently a room this room audio with like the highest levels of audio quality. Well, then you know, Dobie has their up. Audio which they're showing which. That's a little bit of overkill because at most can support one hundred and fifty speakers in a room, they used for theaters which now they announced here that they can get it down into you know, for for your living room, though, pretty pricey for the average consumer unless you're like. A serious serious auto audio file this this is a show full of untraditional non traditional tactics. What was interesting because I I was I was going over for a meeting yesterday afternoon walking through the halls. I was laughing. It was an after it was mid afternoon meeting. Right. And you always have that there's always one exhibit or I don't know who it is came remember the name of it. But there they've been here at CS forever. They literally have like seventy five massage chairs right sitting Laura's thrice. There's a couple of different sections of the people love them. They love them, and you can tell you can tell your hitting like that three o'clock Mark in the line to get into those shares his going on right? Okay. Okay. Here's pretty comfortable. The, but it was funny. Cute up to try to get into one of those massage chairs, and it's like every year. I see those guys and everybody's interested in their in their innovations.

"The quality of journalism and do so without gatekeepers in a way that allows me to control my own message has been amazing the the, the bad things. The same thing that people much more vulnerable than I am complain about, which is that you know anybody can walk over to me in Washington square park and scream how much they hate me at me and to reply to them would actually bring more of that upon me. And so this sort of openness to attack in the loss and the velocity of it. And the scale of it sometimes like when when a big account. Decides that it's gonna, you know, unload on or something. I said, usually in criticism of me being part of a liberal media, which I'm not, but they think I am that which, again, I only experience a fraction of it compared to other people where much more vulnerable than I have and I and I'm privileged character. I have a blue check next to my name. I have tenure at NYU, so I have all these protections, but that would be the the thing that dissatisfied with the most along with some passively in some of the changes that you introduce that really bothers me like, what is the algorithm doing to my feet? I don't actually know and, and I don't know where to go to find out. And that's, that's another trusting area research as well as like the rhythm doesn't know either. Sometimes there's there's this research field in around explain ability, and the intention is to encourage more functionality than allows especially deep learning algorithms to explain the criteria, the decision making criteria they're using right now. That's big issue. They can't be a problem. So if you don't know why decision they made and you literally don't know what you're doing. We're moving more and more of our our decision suet like I'm wearing Napa walk. She tells me to stand right now and then and like I have offloaded a decision around my physical health to his thing. And if it can't tell me why it's making that right, the particular point, I know that it happens ten minutes to the top of the hour, but that may change over time and that may impact something in a fundamental way that I can't predict.

"Like, you know, the existential crisis before us of economic inequality and the growing wealth gap, especially racial wealth, Cup the environment and the displacement of work from artificial intelligence. Those are things that an organizing principle of nation state will not be able to solve because they're global and face all of us and. So on the positive, like I believe this is where the internet can really shine is that we, we haven't global organizing principle and it is the internet, and we have an ability to build layers like Twitter, the ours is focused on conversation. We conversational layer of the internet and make it acceptable to everyone, and some people will utilize that for extremely native things and continue to look for opportunities to game us, and we're never going to build a perfect antidote to that. We have to stay ten steps ahead constantly. And that means we need to be a lot more aware of how people are using the system and how people are intending to to game and act faster. I think the the one advantage that we have against our peers is the fact that it is just completely open. Completely fluid and completely public. I think when you have joined button or a subscribe button into a small community or a closed community, you develop a lot of these really isolated sort of baubles where things can really fester quite quickly and saw so hard to see what's going on inside more important in. And that becomes a real issue when you have to be a small company that's trying to see as much as possible. But everything is out on the offense and everyone in the world. I see what you mean by name advantage in the NCAA and call it out at least raise the issue so that we can identify much faster. Yeah. So I, I do think we have an advantage of everything being on the surface, and I would hate till lose that. Yeah. And so that is not a something not like I rest on because we have definitely been gamed and we've definitely been utilized to manipulate people. And I think that. Attention will only grow. I, I think people continue to find new ways of like we, we saw the Russian government doing two thousand sixteen. We just disclose evidence of folks in Iran taking on similar patterns. I'm certain it'll continue to happen within borders of this country and and countries around the world. But this is where like the organizing principle of the nation state doesn't work because these are going to be able issues and and require global solutions. And we need to prioritize global solutions point to recognize about that tech is that if if it's true that needs to states, won't be able to solve these problems. But we have the internet which is global and does have the scale that means that the companies that that own that global scale become an am very much like a world government..

They talked for an hour and you're going to hear that interview in a couple of seconds. Couple quick notes about this. Jerry this on his iphone five.

I'm like one of those users who always like screams when you change something and half the time I aided and half the time I get to like it. Or did you think you'll trading exactly that? I like at first I said, I'm not gonna do this. I'm going to voluntarily stick to one forty because I thought that was a great constraint. And I thought it was unwise, change it, but now it became a little ridiculous to hold out because everybody else was using eighty when they needed to. So now I'm comfortable with it. It didn't. It didn't actually create any huge problems reform that like when people are just tweeting Moore's or as a protest? Yeah, on average tends to stay below one hundred forty, which is very interesting. Great. Where it's really been helpful is when people have a conversation. So replies do go of one forty. Yeah, and allows a little bit more nuanced movie more space to have a discussion discourse..

He was the owner of Billy long auctions LLC for thirty years. Social media has not been Ilan Musk's best bud lately, although he seems to have a worse enemy himself. Recently, the billionaire tech mogul got into hall water when he tweeted that he was taking his electric car company, private cost, tesla billion bucks. And then in July as divers were desperately trying to save a team of soccer players who were stuck in northern Thailand cave. Mr. musk, tweet it out of the blue that British cave, rescuer, Vernon Unsworth was a quote, Pedo guy. Later apologized and deleted the tweet, and it seemed the saga was over. But alas, Mr. musk was not quite done in emails that BuzzFeed news has now published Mr. musk, accused Mr. Unsworth of having a twelve year old child bride, Ryan Mack is senior tech reporter for BuzzFeed news. We reached him in Washington DC, Ryan, MAC Ilan musk has already had to apologize to this British cave, rescuer Vernon, Unsworth once why is he now doubling down on attacking him, you have to have Kim, but it seems like he hasn't let go of is original accusation against this rescuer. And that's kind of this cascade of events that have defined the world of in the last couple months, remind us about the initial accusation what it must say. So we have to go back to this tie cave. Rescue that happened with. An under sixteen high soccer team that traffic as and in Thailand. Some rescuers brought in Yvonne must came with his team, try and build a submarine. The kids out of ultimate was used, and there was some dispute between the rescuers and musk about how important that submarine would be. One of these rescuers very Unsworth said some not so great things about the submarine said it was a publicity stunt, and that kind of set on off, you know, in my skin to saying these types of things about Vernon, UN's worth and he called him at one point. PetO guy on Twitter, implying a pedophile, and then he ended up apologizing as you mentioned. Now there's this Email, it's getting attention. Take us through what Elon Musk said to you in this Email. Last week, there was a legal threat that came in that was revealed to have been santee lawns home and address that legal threat with about. Out possible, defamation suit on behalf of nuns worth against musk. And so I decided to Email Elon Musk enough, Kim, what do you think about the contents and the nature of that legal that caused him to Email back to me, infiltrate my reporting and get into actually address any of the claims in the in the legal threat. And then we went back and forth, and he emailed me with what he claimed to be off the record which included all these other allegations against UN's worth. So what the nature of those other allegations. So again, the caveat that all of this unproven and there's been no proof he called Mr..

"ceo jack dorsey" Discussed on Reliable Sources with Brian Stelter
"Hey, welcome to a special edition of the reliable sources podcast, an in depth interview with Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey. I'm Brian Stelter and we'll have to Twitter headquarters in seven, Cisco recently to sit down with Dorsey. He's been on a bit of a mediatory in giving interviews and opening up about Twitter's problems, battle in the Beauce and hate speech, disinformation and harassment. These problems of course, are not unique to Twitter, but Dorsey says he is willing to consider anything. He's willing to question everything in order to improve the service to improve what he calls the health of the conversations on Twitter. We spoke for about thirty minutes on the tenth floor of the Twitter headquarters. We added a portion of this on television, but we wanted to share the entire conversation with you in this podcast format beginning with a pretty simple question, what's broken, Jack, thanks so much for sitting down with me. Thank you a big question to start off with, and I'm sorry, it sounds so negative. But what is broken about Twitter today? What is broken about Twitter? I mean, I think it really depends on who you follow and your perception of what you see and and how you feel about that. I mean there there's a lot of emphasis today on politics, Twitter and politics. Twitter tends to be. Pretty divisive, and it tends to be pretty contentious. And you see a lot of outrage and you see a lot of a lot of unhealthy debate that you probably want to walk away from tangibly. If you go to other Twitter's like NBA Twitter or k pop Twitter, you see the complete opposite. You see a lot of empowering conversation. You see a lot of aspects that want to keep you in the conversation and and have you engaged in the conversation. So we do have a lot of focus right now on some of the negative things given the current environment. And I believe it's important to see those. I believe it's important to see the dark areas of society so that we can acknowledge and we can address them. And I think the only way to address them is through conversation, but it is hard especially when it feels toxic and the you want to walk away from it. So I, I don't think there's a generalization around what is broken about Twitter, but there are certainly things that we can. Can look at to help it be healthier across all the Twitter's that you might follow, and you might be interested in across all the communities that exist on. Yup. Absolutely, yeah. What about incentives that encourage the extremes encourage polarization when you're trying to get lots of likes and re tweets? Doesn't that encourage people to? I don't know behave badly. You know, I, I believe it may and I just backing up a bit like when we started the company in the service twelve years ago. We weren't necessarily thinking about some of the repercussions from our actions, and they look quite small at the time. For instance, we thought, you know, well, people are following you so we should count them and then we should put that count right on your profile page and obviously people care about that. So we should make a big, but that one small choice and it felt very small at the time and info obvious at the time, put an incentive to grow that number is at the right attention. Is that the right incentive that we should be driving? I don't think it is today. I don't think it matters as much in context of how many conversations you have or how much you contribute back to the the network. And like is another good example where you know when you tweet and you don't get a lot of lakes and you feel bad about it, is that the incentive we really want to drive? Is that what we're actually..

"With Amy Morris and Peter Barnes on Bloomberg radio quitter CEO Jack Dorsey. Was on Sean Hannity's radio program earlier this month explaining the social. Media companies stance on removing users pass we did not communicate why we? Would take action on threes or why we might suspend temporarily or permanently we want to communicate those. Reasons to the person who was suspended. So what if the, Twitter profile though doesn't. Really belong to a person what if it's a bot specifically, a, part of a Russia social media trolling operation. Because that's happening we. Want to learn more about this Bloomberg's news investigative reporter Ben Elgin joining, us now he's in. Our Bloomberg nine sixty. Studios in San Francisco Ben thank you, for taking the time with us we're, learning a lot now about this burst of activity that you wrote about on Bloomberg terminal this burst of activity it happened last. Summer the social. Media trolling operation Coming out of Russia stepping up its Twitter. Presence tell us what. You learned what was really quite remarkable is that the period from July, to October of twenty. Seventeen we're talking eight. Ten months after the election The Twitter activity of the Russian troll farm was vastly more active than it was in the weeks and months leading up to the two thousand sixteen election so, it was just really remarkable to see this spike and to see the. Spike focused and and the thrust of our stories about how it, focused on this one sort? Of notorious US news site. Called truth feed which which turns out a lot of hyper partisan and factually inaccurate stories. So why were, they pushing the truth feed Vistors falsehoods why were they pushing that well that that's a huge question and so basically what truth feet is they started about seven eight months before the two thousand sixteen election is of mysterious ain't nobody, knows she their financial backers are who the owners are they turn out. A they're they're highly unwaveringly pro-trump and the You know the content is very very divisive in we, saw that in in the troll farms activities I mean their. Their goal is to? Sow discord so I think that they probably. Latched onto the truth, feedstuff, to try to to try to Amplify that stuff So so why didn't Twitter find this shut, it down earlier It's a good question I mean so I think Twitter has really. Struggled to sort of identify the accounts linked with the trophy and I should say these are the known accounts right in and altogether they've given congressional investigators nearly. Four thousand of, these account handles in and shut them down but you know only they really know, kind of what they see behind the. Scenes or what how how these accounts connect to one another so I think it's a really good question and and it's still an open question of how much they actually. Have this covered and how much is still active out there I want to go back to something that you said. Earlier you were talking about the. Spike. Was? Essentially last, summer it was the summer of twenty? Seventeen, why why, then what's the significance of that time period yeah you know nobody really knows that the Clemson. Researchers who did a great job putting this Davis out In the, public? I. Mean there are theory is that look. You know, the the troll farmers always sort of experimenting trying to figure out how they could get these. Accounts to churn out vast quantities of of divisive content and fly under the radar of Twitter right and so they're always trying new stuff now it appears that. That they they, just ramp this is like the next iteration the next way they could try to, elect churn out this content right and. So I don't think it necessarily corresponded with with you know be at the Charlottesville protests and riots or anything else I mean I really think it was just them just. Trying a new iterations and this allowed them this new technique allowed them to churn out just vast quantities of of. Disinformation on Twitter and Twitter shut. Down. In? October of, two thousand seventeen as you report and? Since, then the, administration has sanctioned the this toll pharma the internet research agency right yes so in Feb Moeller special molar indicted the internet research agency as well as thirteen individuals associated with it just for interfering in the two thousand sixteen election. Of course as we know the these efforts continue well past. The election and and, probably? Continue. To this day Okay so what are we looking for, now what is Twitter doing to try to head this. Off in the future or is it possible to do, that you got about twenty seconds, yeah I mean so I think it's definitely possible I mean they're always iterating always trying. New new techniques, and it's just sort of a whack a mole. Case and I. Think it's it's gonna, be hard, for Twitter kind of keep up with this but only they know kind of. What they see behind the scenes with these account registration so I mean, I think only Twitter can really answer that. Question thank you Ben that is Bloomberg news investigative reporter Ben Elgin speaking to us from our Bloomberg nine sixty studios.

"It's always been great. We can make a greater. This is not that hard. In fact, Hillary Clinton's campaign did that. That's the way they spun off make America. Great. Again, we have it is great that we've got room to grow, but conservatives should make hash of this. They should say that this is what progressives believe that America is flawed. It is irredeemable. It will never achieve greatness that we know inherently exist in the constitution and the full flowering. The philosophy that is these enlightenment ideals enshrined in the founding. That is something that conservatives can make hash of. And I think they should still ahead. Info wars is Alex Jones gets a quote timeout, after urging his viewers to ready their battle rifles Twitter, CEO Jack Dorsey explains the reasons behind the seven days suspension. That's next. Welcome back to morning. Joe. Twitter CEO is standing by the company's decision to put info wars as Alex Jones on a seven day suspension. This comes after Jones urged his Twitter followers to ready their battle rifles as he put it against the media in video posted to the site, Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey spoke exclusively to NBC's Lester hold on the raging technology war with the outright conspiracy theorists, and Twitter's reasons for temporary ban. I feel you know any any suspension, whether it'd be permanent one or temporary one, make someone think about their actions and their behaviors and. Changes behavior based on a time out. I don't know. We have found that it does have the potential to change impact and change behavior. John Halama had a Jack Dorsey Jack Dorsey, call your media trainer. A horrible performance. And we see tech CEOs traditionally do not do well. They're not from Bill Gates to Mark Zuckerberg, John Jack Dorsey. He just sounds so. Kind of dope be in responding to this. And the question is the right question. Alex Jones has created a an incredibly profitable lucrative media empire built on conspiracy theory and hate mongering. The idea that a weeks long time out is going to change. His incentive structure is ridiculous and I think people again, you can have a very interesting debate about what kind of a platform Twitter should be about what the rule should be. But his argument, the Dorsey argument that by giving Alex Jones a week timeout that that could change his behavior is beyond Alex John. Jones is not an eighth grader that busted smoking in the bathroom. Like it's just not. I mean, he's guy who has shown who was alright conspiracy theories, and it's that will right. This is what caused the ban and not everything that Alex Jones has done before I've actually met some of the parents of the new Newtown children who were lost that has been devastating the narrative that he created that Newtown never happened and the pain that it's caused some of these parents even one of them that had to move residents beyond those thing. They have to move six and seven times as conspiracy theorists pursue them. But Alex Jones has proven is that decisions like this? No offer people like him martyrdom in some fact his, he rallies his followers around it. They're trying to silence us and shut us down. Yeah, and it's my biggest fear that driving him underground doesn't make him go away. It creates a taboo around his what he's pushing, which makes it a little more valuable for people and they go seek it out. And then people around this table. Well, the, you know, the threats been neutralized. It's gone from our eyes, so we no longer have to spend any energy debunking it. And that's not the appropriate way to deal with somebody like this. Alex Jones is not a new figure. He's been around forever. Nobody in this table shied away from debunking nine, eleven conspiracy theories, right? You relish it. You get in with it because it's necessary to do that kind of work. I'm afraid that by off loading off outsourcing this job, the job of journalists to media companies like Twitter and Facebook is absolving us with the responsibility of doing the work injectors Defense, John. That's the case he made in the interview with lesser hole, which is that with people like Alex Jones, that he put the president in this category to with his tweet about Omarosa being a dog, it's better to have their views in the light of day, then throw them off the platform. We have a, you have a fundamental orbit issue here, which is is the platform is Twitter, is baseball whenever is it a newsstand, or is it a magazine or a plot?.

"Foundation for conservative victory now back to the Sean Hannity show a lot has now, come up in recent days as Facebook and YouTube are banning Alex. Jones and a, couple, of things that are in play here one people, saying well it's a. Violation of first amendment rights and well it's they actually do it's it's not really a first amendment issue, in the sense that as long as it's not government censoring these are companies. And if companies make, decisions that they don't, like the, content but the question is what's going to happen you know who gets to make these decisions who gets to decide Twitter, CEO Jack Dorsey made a decision not to ban Alex Jones but then the issue of Louis Farrakhan. Comes up and that was brought. Up immediately after Alex Jones and then YouTube only band part Louis Farrakhan Nado the parts of Louis Farrakhan. And, I think what you've got here very complicated issue. Than the issue, of shadow banning or, stealth banning or ghost banning or comment ghosting is. What it's an act basically that some. Companies have used to block a user in their content from the online communities such, that they might have put it up there but there's no way. Anybody could either, see, it or spread it because of the algorithms that, these guys are able. To put in place it raises a whole host of issues here my prediction is is that if certain, people are banned and listen if you're on any social media you know how. Violet can get and, I'll just speak for, myself and, my experience the things that have been said the pictures that have been made up the vile vicious threats that I have, received are all there I I tend to be myself a first amendment absolutist in other words I. Think for example on television on Radio on an on social media we all make decisions about the content that we choose to engage it in other words you are the final, arbiter and if. These companies are going to decide well this person stays in this person goes and maybe they have one political bent over another political then bent I would imagine over some period. Of time that there's going to be alternative competitors that allow everybody to say pretty much anything they want now it gets more complicated what. If somebody is giving out instructions like years. Ago the Anarchist's cookbook was a big controversy what if you're teaching, people how to build bombs to, hurt people what do you do, in cases of if people are making direct threats, what do you do with people, that are just plain absolute hate racists bigots antisemites, what are you doing that case where does the. Line, get drawn it's not the simple is not as. Simple when you, really want, to have, an honest discussion About it as it may seem on. The surface anyway it's his first and I think is going. To be as only interview Jack Dorsey is the. CEO of Twitter I really appreciate you coming on because I'm sure this. Is probably the, last thing you wanna do is come on my radio program but I, appreciate, you coming on and answering the questions you have decided not to ban Alex Jones in his particular case. Your argument was he hasn't violated your rules but I think this is far more complicated than I think some people might understand how you will thank you Sean for. The first for the trade and talk, with your listeners, and also ending a picture of the. Complexities were facing this is definitely not easy but word we're trying, to approach this with a very simple principles how do we earn more? Trust and the way for us to earn more trust around, how, we, make decisions? The algorithms helpless enforcers decisions is? Trying to be as open as? Possible about. Them we haven't done a great job at that in the past we're trying to Communicate a. Lot, more in a queer in Shreveport way but there's a lot lot of nuance in everything that we're facing and. We want to make sure that wherever you not gonna good job Jack what do you think you've you've fallen short in terms of, this particular issue I think the I think the first. Thing is we you know in the past. We did not communicate, why we were take action on tweets or. Why we might suspend temporarily or permanently we want to communicate that those reasons to the person who. Was suspended or or tweet in question and also the reporters so simple communication with the product but more broadly we haven't done a. Great job at communicating our, principles the. The you know the guidelines that help us make the. Decisions in the first place so we're getting better and better step by step but we have a lot more, work to do there let me ask about specific questions has Twitter ever been involved. In shadow banning we do not shed Oban according to political. Ideology or viewpoint Or content? Period we every every model that we have on the network Is really, looking at the behaviors on the network we take those behaviors and signals and I do want, to point, out that these signals a ball minute like minute by minute hourly hourly or not scarlet permanent letters that people take on as a badge and we'll. Never be ranked. High in church or not allowed to trend or ranked I in conversation. So he's models that are looking at behaviors and behaviors of bad faith actors who intend to manipulate. Distract divide a conversation or two unfairly amplify their content which they, earn so those signals that factor in and and we do rank search we do rank trends. And we do rank conversations accordingly, that does not affect one's time line if. You follow someone on Twitter you're going to, see them in your timeline now we do rank the timeline for. Relevance so it might take some scrolling to see everything Turn that ranking off. In the settings so you can see everything in recent seawater what about and I think this might be something everybody agrees. On, let's start with people that are calling for some type. Of violence of any kind or, threatening violence against an individual I think that would probably be an easy we're not going to, allow that, right yes that is much easier any sort of violent speech encouragement towards violence harassment is directly against their terms of service and we're taking media action. On it what. If somebody now it gets more nuanced I wish somebody would just punch. Hannity in the face what do you do that well we have to in in all these considerations. Not to get into specifics we have to take the context to, really understand what the context of the conversation as extremely hard for an algorithm do and and. Certainly hard for for humans to, do so we make sure that all of. Our folks understand the cultural context of something, that I becomes some cultural context allow persons speech Nabil's from each other cultural cultural, context don't so as we review cases of. Reports or, blocks or mutes we have to make sure that we're. Taking into consideration that context and then acting acting appropriately and doing so with with warnings with notices with a temporary. To lock of the account into that tweet. Is reviewed or or deleted and, ideally? Giving, them the exact reasons. Why violates or do you have enough people that would be able to monitor and handle, that you won't miss threats we'll certainly. Miss things we're we're certainly going to make? Mistakes along the way that's why it's important for us. To make sure that we? Have, I think it's more complicated than everybody knows now what do you do. In the case of a figure that is known either oh a white racist or supremacist or k. k. k. member or maybe on the other end of the spectrum you've. Got Louis Farrakhan known anti Semite racist what do you do when they set up an account is it that you you're monitor, them Them and if if it's a certain video that, they're linking to if it's a certain article that has racist ramblings in it then it becomes a little again it becomes a little more nuanced sometimes or maybe somebody is an overt racist and they used horrible language and then, maybe somebody is more subtle and they. Use code language that is racist it's in that sense you know it becomes harder does it does it not it. Does become it does become, harder but so we rely on a bunch of. Signals including reports from those who that account might attack or from. Bystanders and then we also take into consideration. Again, the context of everything that's happening around some of the groups that you mentioned, earlier, on there might be a violent extremist groups tried to get onto our service and we take that into, consideration we also look in those particular, cases. At all platform behavior as well so things that aren't? Just happening on Twitter, but happening on Other platforms or, in the real world at Jack. By the way if you ever want to write the CEO of Twitter and, I know you're try to. Respond to many people because I've senior account we'll come back I want to discuss. The slippery slope aspect, of this, if it's political. Content or? Controversial content and?.
