The netizen asked a question, tagging Jack Dorsey on the microblogging platform that, "Wondering what was your intent on Twitter and has it turned out the way you wanted? It feels a bit skewed leftward right now. How do we straighten it? It seems an inordinate amount of rightward-leaning. Twitter users are being banned or kicked off. It can't be good for MDAU."

For this Dorsey responded that, "The biggest issue and my biggest regret is that it became a company."

When asked about what structure he wished Twitter would operate under, Dorsey share that, "It should be a protocol and that Twitter should not be owned by a state or another company."

He also added that, "If it were a protocol, Twitter would operate much like email, which is not controlled by one centralized entity, and people using different email providers are able to communicate with one another."
