Twitter will be working harder and quicker than ever to make Twitter a secure and informational space
The social media platform closed its Trust and Safety Council on Monday, a volunteer group which was formed in 2016 for the purpose of giving advice on site decisions.
Since Elon Musk took over the company and implemented a cost-cutting drive, about 3,700 employees have lost their jobs. A total of 1,000 employees have resigned, including Yoel Roth, former head of Trust and Safety at the company.
An email sent to Trust and Safety Council Members mentioned that as Twitter enters a new phase, they are reassessing how to best include outside perspectives into our work developing products and policies.They have determined that the Trust and Safety Council is not the most appropriate body to carry out this procedure. The twitter page of this group was even deleted.
According to a web archive for the page, the council was made up of numerous human rights organisations, academics, and other organisations that promoted safety and provided advice to Twitter as it evolved its products, services, and guidelines.
An inquiry for comment from Reuters did not receive a response right away from Twitter.
The email from Twitter read that they will be working harder and quicker than ever to make Twitter a secure and informational space, and they shall strive to be open to your suggestions on how to do so in the future.
Three Council members left last week, expressing their worry for Twitter users' safety.
One of the council members, Anne Collier took to twitter and posted, “Three of us resigned from Twitter’s Trust & Safety Council today.”
