Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has apologised for a series of tweets he posted earlier in the week which celebrated Myanmar and its beauty.

Dorsey, who had just finished a silent meditation retreat in Myanmar, claimed the country was a “beautiful country”, with many fellow Twitter users slamming the CEO for ignoring the ongoing Rohingya genocide taking place.

Users accused Dorsey of “spreading fake news” following the tweets.

Now, Dorsey has made a public statement, claiming he needs to “learn more”.

“I don’t know enough and need to learn more,” he said.

“Twitter is a way for people to share news and information about events in Myanmar as well as to bear witness to the plight of the Rohingya and other peoples and communities,” he said.

“We’re actively working to address emerging issues. This includes violent extremism and hateful conduct.”
