Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says the platform is not responsible the election results.
"America's responsible for Donald Trump being president," he said at the Code Commerce conference in San Francisco on Tuesday.
Elections have always been big on Twitter and this one was especially important for the company, he said. Trump has well understood how to use Twitter for some time, said Dorsey.
"Having the president-elect on our service using it as a direct line of communication allows everyone to see what is on his mind in the moment," he said.
"We're definitely entering a new world where everything is on the surface and we can all see that in real time and we can have conversations about it," he said.
"It's definitely been fascinating to learn from."
When asked directly how he feels about this, Dorsey said: "It's complicated."
Though he feels very proud of the role Twitter plays, all that it stands for and the spotlight it earned through the election, the implications of having a real-time feed of Trump's thought processes are not yet understood, he said.
