Prince HarryHe has an unmatched understanding of hate and media. He spoke out about his fear of the Capitol riots in a recent interview and warned Twitter CEO Jack DorseyIt is time to take action. Here’s what’s going on.
Harry’s never had a positive relationship with the UK media. You can see how the UK treated his mother. Princess DianaShe was a tragic loss, and she made it all better. His life was in the spotlight for many decades. Things only got worse when his marriage to an American took place. The UK media’s cruelty is partially what drove him and Meghan Markle out of the country.
“I learned from a very young age that the incentives of publishing are not necessarily in line with the incentives of the truth,”The Duke of Sussex Recently told Wired. He accuses British press of conflating “profit with purpose and news with entertainment.”Harry believes that the press makes fact-based news gossip.
He pulls no punches. Harry is exact when he blames media for his mother’s death. He said this about the transformation from news to profit when discussing his mother’s death. “I know the story all too well. I lost my mother to this self-manufactured rabidness, and obviously, I’m determined not to lose the mother of my children to the same thing.” This isn’t the first time Harry has mentioned his mother and Markle’s relationship to the media in the same breath.
Talking on Twitter
He called the internet “defined by hate, division, and lies… that can’t be right.”Harry related a story about Jack Dorsey (Twitter CEO) as he spoke on misinformation. “Jack and I were emailing each other prior to January 6th. I warned him that his platform was allowing a coup to be staged.”Dorsey was sent the email on the day of the capitol riots. He never replied. Harry revealed that they have not spoken since the 5th email.
Twitter can be a fertile ground for hate groups, misinformation and other forms of violence. The social media platform’s algorithm rewards divisive responses with exposure, so users are incentivized to be cruel. Harry is an expert in cruelty and misinformation so Dorsey should have listened to his words.
It’s unclear what Dorsey could have done on the eve of the riot, but Harry’s email proves he You already knewIt would be a good thing. ChooseYou can do nothing about it. Neither Harry nor Markle have Twitter pages anymore, and that’s probably great news for the sake of their mental health.
