Anika Collier Navaroli on Selective Free Speech

Anika Collier Navaroli, Twitter executive, quoted in “Free Speech for Whom?” by Jonathan Turley (February 9, 2023).

Rep. Stansbury asked what Twitter has done and is doing to combat hate speech on its platform. Navaroli correctly declined to address current policies since she has not been at the company for some time. However, she then said that they balanced free speech against safety and explained that they sought a different approach: “Instead of asking just free speech versus safety to say free speech for whom and public safety for whom. So whose free expression are we protecting at the expense of whose safety and whose safety are we willing to allow to go the winds so that people can speak freely.”
