Billionaire behind Dakota Access Pipeline `underestimated' social media

 

February 27, 2017



Billionaire Kelcy Warren, who faced months of protests over the Dakota Access oil pipeline, said his company followed every law and still fell into a "mess."

Warren "underestimated the power of social media" during the standoff with environmental and Native American-rights activists, he said on a call with analysts Thursday. The Energy Transfer Partners LP chief executive officer was surprised that people were able to spread messages — including falsehoods — so widely and quickly over the Internet and "get away with it."
