Prince Harry Alleges He Warned Twitter’s CEO About The January 6 Capitol Insurrection

Prince Harry recently alleged how he warned Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey about the January 6 Capitol Insurrection just a day before the tragedy unfolded.

Harry said: “Jack and I were emailing each other prior to January 6 where I warned him his platform was allowing a coup to be staged.”

The Duke of Sussex was speaking on Tuesday on an online panel discussing disinformation in which he aired his grievances at the media.

During the panel hosted by Wired, Harry also expanded on his personal experiences with the media.

“Misinformation is a global humanitarian crisis. I felt it personally over the years and I’m now watching it happening globally, affecting everyone not just in America, literally everyone around the world,” Harry shared.

“The scariest part about this is you don’t need to be online to be affected by this. It’s important to recognise this problem did not originate in social media. I learned from a very early age that the incentives of publishing are not necessarily aligned with the incentives of truth.”

He added: “I know the story all too well, I lost my mother to this self-manufactured rabidness and obviously I’m determined not to lose the mother of my children to the same thing.”

“In one single household you can have three or four versions of reality when it comes to truth and fact. This is not a case of ‘this could happen to you.’ This is already happening to you.”

“We can all feed into it if we’re not aware of it but if we’re aware of our digital diet and what we consume every single day then perhaps we’d be more conscious about what we pass on, what we don’t, what we are actually consuming and the fact it is actually affecting the way that we think.”

He said: “I’m not on social media, we’re not on social media, and until things change that will remain the same.”

“We’ve been led to believe this challenge is too big to fix, too big to solve. What I’ve learned over the past six months as part of the Aspen Commission is that simply isn’t true.”

Harry said: “There’s a lot of really damaging articles and facts coming out about these companies but yet the change is not happening. We can fix this, we have to fix this, but we need everyone’s help.”
