Yoel Roth, head of trust and safety, is the latest senior executive at Twitter to step down after Elon Musk took over.
After Elon Musk took over Twitter, he fired some of its top executives, and now it looks like more people are leaving the company.
According to published reports, Joel Roth, Twitter’s head of trust and safety, resigned from his position, and Robin Wheeler, head of ad sales, also made such a request before being persuaded by Musk.
In the early days of Elon Musk’s CEO tenure, both of Twitter’s top executives have done things to ease user concerns. In his tweets, Roth has repeatedly tried to calm the fears and concerns of users about the reduction of moderation of this social network under the leadership of Musk and the adjustment of its extensive employees.
However, Roth has now updated her bio to “former head of trust and safety at Twitter“, indicating that she has resigned.
Wheeler also tried to reassure worried advertisers about the future of the platform by hosting a space on Twitter with Elon Musk this week. After news of his resignation broke, Wheeler tweeted, “Still here,” but did not respond to comments seeking clarification.
“Kurt Wagner” from Bloomberg wrote about this in a tweet: “Trip story! “I’m told that while Wheeler resigned earlier today, Elon convinced him to stay.” Casey Newton from Platformer magazine also confirmed such a claim.
The departure of senior Twitter employees
So Roth is the latest Twitter CEO to resign after Elon Musk took over. After buying the company, the world’s richest man fired former CEO Parag Agrawal, former CFO Neg Segal, former policy director Vijaya Gad and general counsel Sean Edgett. Chief Privacy Officer Damien Kieran, Chief Information Security Officer Leah Kisner, and Chief Compliance Officer Marianne Fogarty are among the other senior executives who have announced their resignations in recent days.
There were also reports yesterday that Elon Musk has ended telecommuting at Twitter to prepare employees for the tough times ahead.
