Twitter’s head of trust and safety, Ella Irwin announced her resignation from the social media company on Thursday.
Irwin joined the company in June 2022 and was saddled with the role of head of trust in November.
Since billionaire Elon Musk acquired it in October, according to Reuters, the social media company has faced criticism for lax protections against harmful content.
Irwin took over from the previous head, Yoel Roth.
An email to Twitter returned an automated reply with a poop emoji.
Irwin declined further comment and Musk did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
Irwin’s departure comes as the platform has struggled to retain advertisers, with brands wary of appearing next to unsuitable content.
Recall that Elon Musk recently hired Linda Yaccarimo as the new Twitter’s CEO.
Since Musk’s acquisition, Twitter has cut costs dramatically and laid off thousands of employees, including many who had worked on efforts to prevent harmful and illegal content, protect election integrity, and surface accurate information on the site.
