Twitter Chief Executive Jack Dorsey tweeted on Wednesday evening saying he does not celebrate or feel pride in our having to ban @realdonaldtrump on Twitter. 

Twitter banned Donald Trump the next day after the Capitol Hill incident for inciting violence.

"After a clear warning we’d take this action, we made a decision with the best information we had based on threats to physical safety both on and off Twitter", Dorsey said highlighting the fact of suspending Trump for a day with a warning.

Jack also said that banning an account "has real and significant ramifications". He also said he feels the ban is a failure to promote healthy conversation.

Jack posted a series of tweets about the ban in which he expressed his opinions about Twitter's ban. 

He highlighted the necessity of check and balance; and also pointed out the requirement of being critical of actions.

Twitter CEO also shared his passion for Bitcoin, "largely because of the model it demonstrates: a foundational internet technology that is not controlled or influenced by any single individual or entity."

He concluded the tweets saying, "I believe the internet and global public conversation is our best and most relevant method of achieving this. I also recognize it does not feel that way today. Everything we learn at this moment will better our effort, and push us to be what we are: one humanity working together."
