Conservative Commentator Labeled ‘Far-Right’ on Twitter — Now CEO Jack Dorsey Is Apologizing

Twitter labeled a conservative commentator “far-right,” and now the social media site’s chief executive is apologizing for it.

This week, Candace Owens, the communications director for the conservative student group Turning Point USA, was described as “far-right” in a Twitter Moment. When Owens saw the descriptor, she immediately called attention to it:

The Twitter Moment — and Owens’ subsequent objection — came after rapper Kanye West defended the conservative talker. West’s defense of Owens was followed by a series of pro-Trump tweets that irked the left.

After seven days and more than 30,000 retweets, Dorsey reached out to Owens to apologize for the way his site described her. He even thanked Owens for “calling out” the issue:

Twitter has faced criticism in the past for its perceived bias against conservative users and its embrace of progressivism.
