The United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, Volker Türk, urged new Twitter owner Elon Musk to ensure the social network respects human rights, in an open letter, Saturday.
“Like all companies, Twitter must understand the harms associated with its platform and take steps to remedy it,” Türk wrote. Respect for human rights should constitute a safety barrier for the use and development of the platform. In short, I invite you to ensure that human rights are central to managing Twitter under your leadership.”
