CEO Dorsey urges Trump to use Twitter more
Twitter executives are voicing their support for US President Donald Trump's frequent use of their social media platform — and have even encouraged the president to use Twitter more.

On Sunday's broadcast of the "Today" show on NBC, Chief Executive Jack Dorsey said in an interview that he thinks Trump's frequent use of Twitter serves a greater political good.

"I believe it's really important I hear directly from our leadership. And I believe it’s really important to hold them accountable," Dorsey said. "And I believe it's really important to have these conversations out in the open rather than have them behind closed doors."

He said Trump has "found a tool that's useful for him."

Dorsey said that the absence of platforms like Twitter would be bad for open political discourse. "It goes in the dark and I just don't think that's good for anyone," he said.

His remarks came shortly after Anthony Noto, Twitter's chief financial and operating officer, encouraged the White House to use the social media platform even more.

Noto was responding to a recent tweet Trump posted in which the US President said he was considering eliminating regular White House press briefings.

The company said it had 328 million active users after adding 9 million in the first quarter of the year, according to global media reports.
