twitter along with facebook are facing a lot of questions on how much social media platforms should be responsible for misinformation and violent rhetoric. see notes editor at large insurers. joining us to talk about this i welcome what does this mean for twitter where users notice any changes. you know. >> most of us, it's going to feel like just another monday and tuesday is going to be that much different. the real change is in the opportunity for twitter. their new ceo who has been there for almost a decade is going to offer this opportunity to kind of have a reset right. and the reason i raise this is that even though jack dorsey has been the head of the twitter now for 6 or what some odd years and also he was the founding ceo. he's been there really since the beginning of one form or him decide to leave. and by the way, leaving completely by may issue is what he said really

turned around a lot of their culture and started working together in ways that they had under the previous leadership. you have google trying to kind of find its next big thing after search and even when you think about where all these other companies are going. apple went from being already a large company to being one of the largest tech companies in history. and that was all under tim cook. so for twitter, a lot of this opportunity is saying ok, well, maybe we reconsider the way we handle stuff like harassment. maybe we start reconsidering the way we handle how we build community and what we look at community what we think of as a good community on twitter because clearly if you listen to people who are advocates for victims who are harassed and attacked on that platform every day. they don't feel as though the company's doing enough, even today. >> dorsey says the company is ready to move on from its founders. you but has he had it. i mean, obviously he's

i'm morgan, and there's more to me than hiv. more love, more adventure, more community. but with my hiv treatment, there's not more medicines in my pill. i talked to my doctor and switched to fewer medicines with dovato. dovato is for some adults who are starting hiv-1 treatment or replacing their current hiv-1 regimen. with just 2 medicines in 1 pill, dovato is as effective as a 3-drug regimen... to help you reach and stay undetectable. research shows people who take hiv treatment as prescribed and get to and stay undetectable can no longer transmit hiv through sex. don't take dovato if you're allergic to its ingredients or if you take dofetilide. taking dovato with dofetilide can cause serious or life-threatening side effects. hepatitis b can become harder to treat while on dovato. don't stop dovato without talking to your doctor, as your hepatitis b may worsen or become life-threatening.
