In an interview with CNBC, Jim Carey added: “(We) must encourage more oversight by the owners of these social media platforms.

“This easy access has to be more responsibly handled. What we need now are activist investors to send a message that responsible oversight is needed. What the world needs now is capitalism with a conscience.”
