Twitter CEO: It's important to hear what Trump has to say

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey defended President Trump's use of his platform, emphasizing the importance of hearing from the man himself for the sake of accountability.

In an interview scheduled to air Sunday on Sunday TODAY, NBC's Willie Geist describes the people who oppose the president's constant tweeting.

"They say, 'How could you give this man a platform to say all the things he's been saying since he started to run for president?'"

Dorsey replied, "I believe it's really important to hear directly from our leadership. I believe it's really important to hold him accountable. And I believe it's really important to have these conversations out in the open rather than behind closed doors."

He continued that taking the platforms away would lead to Trump's dealings being left in the dark.

"Is that good for anyone?" Dorsey wondered.

Trump is prone to tweetstorms, during which he'll talk (or complain) about everything from foreign policy to the news media to celebrities and politicians. His latest came Friday morning, when he threatened to cancel press briefings over coverage of his firing of FBI director James Comey.
