Twitter: power and responsibility by Intellectual Forum, Jesus College

Regulating and protecting the Open Internet with Twitter’s Senior Director of Global Public Policy, Nick Pickles.

About this event

Social media has transformed the world. Twitter has grown incredibly since its creation in 2006 and now has nearly over 200 million active users. With great power comes great responsibility – and Twitter is constantly having to work out how best to balance issues such as freedom of speech and safety online. Recently they published a set of principles to inform how policymakers can protect the Open Internet while regulating various aspects of it.

How should people and governments respond to social media? How do we get the benefits, whilst avoiding the harms?

Join us to discuss these issues with Twitter’s Senior Director of Global Public Policy, Nick Pickles.
