Twitter cuts more trust and safety team staff

Twitter cuts more trust and safety team staff
In brief

Twitter has made additional cuts to its trust and safety team, which is in charge of content moderation around hateful speech and misinformation.

The layoffs, which occurred Friday, are believed to have affected at least a dozen people in Twitter’s Dublin and Singapore offices, according to a report from Bloomberg. They included Nur Azhar Bin Ayob, head of site integrity for the Asia-Pacific region, and additional employees overseeing Twitter’s misinformation and state media policies.

Since Elon Musk took over Twitter in late October, misinformation has reportedly increased amid mass layoffs, and Twitter’s independent Trust and Safety Council has been disbanded.
