Twitter’s ex-CEO attacks Facebook for proliferation of Bill Gates conspiracy theories – Business Insider
There’s a big spat between Twitter and Facebook right now over the nature of free speech and censorship online.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg appeared on Fox News on Thursday to say Facebook won’t apply fact-checks to political figures like Trump, following Twitter’s decision to fact-check two of the president’s tweets about mail-in voting.
Former Twitter CEO Dick Costolo attacked Facebook late on Thursday saying it is a hotbed for anti-vaxxer coronavirus conspiracy theories.
He cited a survey, in which 50% of Fox News viewers responded they believe the conspiracy that Microsoft billionaire Bill Gates wants to distribute coronavirus vaccines as a way of tracking people.
