Twitter's Jack Dorsey: 'I Don't Use a Lot of Facebook Products—Any Actually'

Twitter boss Jack Dorsey has said he doesn't use Facebook products and takes "different approaches" to rival CEO Mark Zuckerberg.

The billionaire entrepreneur, 43, who leads Twitter and the mobile payments company Square, revealed his anti-Facebook app choices during a recent conversation with Rich Kleiman on the first episode of the podcast "The Boardroom: Out of Office."

Kleiman, who is friends with Dorsey, is a businessman and sports agent. He co-founded Thirty Five Ventures and manages Brooklyn Nets forward Kevin Durant.

His recent chat with Dorsey, which aired earlier this month, made it clear that the Twitter boss is not personally a fan of Zuckerberg's company's suite of apps, which are used by billions of people and includes Facebook, WhatsApp and Instagram.

"I don't really use an Instagram. I love what Snapchat has innovated around, I think they're phenomenal. I don't use a lot of Facebook products—any, actually," Dorsey said during a segment in which Kleiman was ranking choices of social media apps.

When Kleiman asked for the preference of his associate Gianni Harrell, the response was Instagram, Snapchat, and Twitter—in that order. Dorsey, when asked the same question, noted that his own choice was the "exact opposite of that."

Directly after, Dorsey was asked in a light-hearted way if he had "beef" with Zuckerberg to which he replied: "Uh, there's different approaches Rich," before laughing. Business Insider first reported Dorsey's most recent comments about Zuckerberg, 36.

The differences between Twitter and Facebook have become much more apparent over the past year, with Dorsey's site banning all political ads and taking a stricter approach to moderating policy-breaking content uploaded by President Donald Trump.

Last October, Dorsey criticized Facebook during an appearance at the Twitter News Conference in New York, noting that he disagreed with comments made by Zuckerberg about free speech and his decision not to fact-check paid political messaging.

"We talk a lot about speech and expression and we don't talk about reach enough, and we don't talk about amplification," Dorsey had said at the time. "And reach and amplification was not represented in that speech."

His criticism stemmed from a lectureZuckerberg gave at Georgetown University, in which he defended Facebook's moderation policies and claimed he had been inspired by the events during the Iraq war, ignoring tellings that suggest Facebook's earliest iteration was actually a way to compare and rate students' attractiveness.

"There's some amount of revisionist history in all his storytelling," Dorsey said. "It takes away from the authenticity and genuineness of what we're trying to do."

Dorsey unfollowed Zuckerberg on Twitter last December. Zuckerberg's account, @finkd, has posted 12 times since 2009.
