'What Is A (Fired) Woman?' - Twitter Head Of Trust & Safety Gone After "Mistake"..

•, by Tyler Durden

Update (2000ET): Following Elon Musk's comments earlier that the cancellation of a deal to show Daily Wire's 'What Is A Woman?' documentary "was a mistake by many people at Twitter," Fortune reports that Twitter's head of trust and safety is no longer in Twitter's internal slack, citing an unidentified person and a screenshot of her deactivated account.

Reuters later reported that Ella Irwin told them that she has resigned from the social media company.

As The Wall Street Journal reports, Irwin's departure is the second time someone in that role has left since Elon Musk bought the company in October.

Yoel Roth, who had previously served as Twitter's head of trust and safety, left the company in November, and Irwin subsequently took the top job overseeing user content and safety policies.

Irwin, who joined Twitter about a year ago, declined to comment Thursday on the reasons for her decision to leave Twitter.

She said in an interview she felt she had always been honest in her work.

Presumably by her definition of "honest".

Musk noted briefly in a response to questions about the ban/throttling of the documentary: "being fixed."

The Twitter CEO added in a thread with the creator of the documentary that "It will be advertising-restricted, as advertisers have the right to decide what content their ads appear with, which will impact reach to some degree."

It appears there are still plenty of anti-free-speech workers at Twitter...
