Jack Dorsey mocks Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook metaverse plan

The Twitter CEO isn't for the idea, calling it dystopian

Facebook is planning to change its name and rebrand for a metaverse-based future, and Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey isn’t for it, essentially calling the idea dystopian in a reply to a tweet surrounding the concept.

The metaverse refers to a future version of the internet where instead of accessing the internet in the way we all do now, through phones and tablets, laptops and computers, we access it through virtual and augmented reality.

A Twitter user tweeted about Zuckeberg's metaverse ambitions, sharing a statement that the term was first pointed out strongly by science fiction writer Neal Stephenson in his 1992 novel "Snow Crash."

This concept described a virtual world owned by corporations where end users were treated as citizens in a dystopian corporate dictatorship. The tweet ended sharing:

“what if neal was right”

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey quickly jumped in on the tweet to say that he was right, essentially calling the idea by Facebook out.

It’s a controversial topic, so we want to know, are you for this idea, or not? Let us know!
