Twitter CEO responds to Myanmar criticism

San Francisco (CNN Business)Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has admitted he needs to learn more about Myanmar after coming under fire for his recent comments about the country.

Critics said this week that Dorsey’s tweets about his vacation in Myanmar ignored the deadly persecution of the Rohingya ethnic minority in the country. Many activists say social media, primarily Facebook (FB), has helped fuel the violence in Myanmar.
In a series of tweets Tuesday, Dorsey said he is “aware of the human rights atrocities and suffering in Myanmar” and doesn’t “view visiting, practicing, or talking with the people, as endorsement.”
