Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey: This is who is responsible for Trump's election

It's no secret that the presidential election and the following Cabinet appointments and events following president-elect Trump's win in November have created quite the frenzy on social media.

It seems that you can't scroll through your Facebook newsfeed or read more than two tweets without at least one (usually emotion-fueled) reference to Trump, Clinton or politics in general.

Donald Trump's tweets about pop stars:

That's precisely the question that Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey was asked.

Succinct and clearly, Dorsey told The Guardian:

"America is responsible for Donald Trump being president."

He did, however, elaborate on his opinions regarding Trump's twitter usage:

"He's known how to use it for quite some time. I think it's an important time for the company and service. And having the president-elect on our service, using it as a direct line of communication, allows everyone to see what's on his mind in the moment. I think that's interesting. I think it's fascinating. I haven't seen that before."

Twitter currently has 317M active users.
