Any hope that the new Twitter CEO replacing Jack Dorsey would offer some sort of hope at a fair shake for conservatives was quickly diminished on Monday. Parag Agrawal was named new CEO of Twitter, and it didn’t take long to uncover some genuine concern.

In 2010, Agrawal shared the following tweet:

“If they are not gonna make a distinction between Muslims and extremists, then why should I distinguish between white people and racists.”

Other concerns include Agrawal saying that Twitter is not “bound by the First Amendment,” like other private companies.

Dorsey announced he was stepping down this morning.

Former Trump aide, Jason Miller, speculated that Agrawal may be a bigger threat to free speech than Dorsey.
