Twitter executive faces criticism after suggesting Trump do Q&As on Twitter

Even Twitter executives have to be careful about what they say in 140 characters.

On Friday, President Donald Trump criticized the media coverage about him, suggesting in a tweet that perhaps the “the best thing to do would be to cancel all future press briefings.”

Twitter COO and CFO Anthony Noto then suggested that the president could get questions submitted and answered on Twitter.

That comment rubbed some high-profile Twitter users — including early Twitter investor and former venture capitalist Chris Sacca — the wrong way.

Marketing and advertising consultant Phil Schwartz replied that Noto should “develop a backbone” and ban the president for violating Twitter ‘s “Online Abuse” policies.

And the criticism just kept on coming.

Noto clarified in a tweet that he didn’t mean that he supported cancelling press briefings.

But Twitter executives have said before that they believe it’s important that Trump keeps tweeting because it would hold him accountable.

Others have called on Twitter to ban the president from the social media site for hate speech, misinformation and harassment.

“I believe it’s really important to have these conversations out in the open, rather than have them behind closed doors,” Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey told Willie Geist this month on the TODAY show.
