Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey got involved at the Bitcoin 2021 conference in Miami

Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey was molested late Friday (local time) at the Bitcoin 2021 conference in Miami.

“Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey was angry about censorship during a #Bitcoin event,” tweeted

At the event, one of the attendees cut the discussion off at one point, apparently accusing Dorsey of improper censorship of freedom of expression on Twitter.

According to US entertainment news company Meaww, the participant who interrupted Dorsey was an anti-Muslim activist, Laura Loomer.

She attacked Dorsey on the Bitcoin reference because she was a “huge hypocrite about censorship and freedom of expression”.

Laura registered her protest against the new censorship rules and accused Dorsey of “interfering” with people’s rights.

“Censorship is a human rights violation,” she said. After her gimmick, Laura was quickly escorted out, Meaww reported.

Laura already banned Twitter in 2018 after posting a tweet about Minnesota representative Ilhan Omar. In her tweet, Laura mentioned that Omar, one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, was “anti-Jewish” and that her religion promoted homophobia and abuse of women.

Laura had registered her protest against the ban from the platform by handcuffing herself to the glass doors that led to the Twitter headquarters in Manhattan. “It’s almost like Twitter hates Jews and Conservatives. When will Jack Dorsey stop censoring conservatives? When will I get my Twitter back? I’ll be here while it lasts, ”she said, reported Meaww.

Twitter raged with reactions to Laura Loomer’s heckling from the Twitter CEO about censorship issues. While some agreed with Laura’s stance, some condemned her act.

One user wrote: “Jack Dorsey, why aren’t you doing the right thing and letting everyone hear the voices? Seriously, what are you so afraid of?

One of the comments slamming Laura Looner read: “When I heard that Laura Loomer just lost to Jack Dorsey at a Bitcoin event in Miami – sorry for censorship, stupid Laura, wrong platform It’s Facebook, on that You are pissed today. But hey, keep it up! Rational America appreciates the help in banning Trump permanently from Twitter! “

Another tweet read, “Laura Loomer is a racist Islamophobic loser who feels important because she has a tendency to do something stupid on Twitter every now and then … like she did with Jack Dorsey today.”

At the conference, Dorsey was accompanied during the discussion by Alex Gladstein, Chief Strategy Officer of the Human Rights Foundation and another advocate of the sovereign potential of Bitcoin.
