Twitter’s second head of trust and safety under owner Elon Musk has left the company.
A month after Elon Musk seized control of the business in November 2022, Ella Irwin replaced departing leader Yoel Roth.
Content moderation, a subject that has received increased attention since Mr. Musk’s takeover, is the responsibility of the head of trust and safety.
She gave Reuters and the Wall Street Journal her official resignation statement. She resigned, although it’s not obvious why.
However, it comes a day after Mr Musk publicly criticised a content moderation decision made at Twitter.
He called the decision to limit the visibility of a video over allegations of misgendering, “a mistake by many people at Twitter”.
“Whether or not you agree with using someone’s preferred pronouns, not doing so is at most rude and certainly breaks no laws,” he wrote.
It comes a week after the social media platform pulled out of the European Union’s voluntary code to fight disinformation.
Mr Musk announced last month that Linda Yaccarino, the former head of advertising at NBCUniversal, would become Twitter’s new chief executive. She has not yet started her role.
