TED Talk Talk with Dorsey took a strange turn Tuesday when countless Twitter users trolled the CEO using the #AskJackAtTED hashtag that was projected on the screen behind him.
The CEO said that if he designs it today he will not highlight the follower count or even love – the users reacted as you might expect: with many complaints about the apparent inability of The platform to prevent harassment and abuse.

"We can do a bunch of superficial things to answer what you're talking about, we're working as fast as we can, but speed will not do the trick.
One user expressed concern about Dorsey's health. The technology tycoon, who wore a black hat and a puffer during a TED call, is a supporter of fasting on and off and only consumes one meal a day.
