"We have witnessed abuse, harassment, troll armies, manipulation through bots and human-coordination, misinformation campaigns, and increasingly divisive echo chambers", Dorsey said in a series of tweets on March 1. But they want to be very open and very vulnerable with all about "what they are facing and what their challenges are".
