Jack Dorsey: “I do not celebrate” Trump’s Twitter ban

Just a few days ago, Twitter banned outgoing President Donald Trump, taking away his favorite distraction. While many welcomed the move as a preventative step for future violence following the unprecedented attack on the US Capitol, others condemned it as an overreach. Not all of the latter were necessarily Trump supporters either; German Chancellor Angela Merkel called the move “problematic,” a sentiment shared by some who worry about the power held by major social media companies. The fact tha...

On February 25th, 1964, Cassius Clay beat Sonny Liston to become the heavyweight champion of the world. He spent the rest of the night with friends Malcolm X, NFL legend Jim Brown and soul singer Sam Cooke. Within weeks, Clay would become Muhammad Ali; he would also soon split with Malcolm X, who like Cooke would be dead within a year. All that is pretty fertile ground for a story, and Kemp Powers (co-writer and co-director of Pixar’s “Soul”) imagined that fateful day first as a play and then as...
