After Donald Trump threatened Twitter with big action that can come in the form of an executive order soon, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey on Thursday defended the fact checking action against Trump tweets.

Dorsey said the micro-blogging platform would continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally.

"Fact check: there is someone ultimately accountable for our actions as a company, and that's me. Please leave our employees out of this. We'll continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. And we will admit to and own any mistakes we make," tweeted Dorsey.
