Twitter’s former head of trust and safety, Yoel Roth, warned on Tuesday that the social media firm was not safer under owner Elon Musk, warning that the company no longer had enough people for safety work.

Twitter Is Not Safer Under Elon Musk

After Musk’s takeover, Roth declared that, by some metrics, Twitter safety had improved under billionaire’s management.

When asked if he still felt that way during an interview at the Knight Foundation conference on Tuesday, Roth responded, “No.”

Roth was a Twitter veteran who helped guide the social media network through numerous watershed choices, including last year’s decision to permanently suspend its most prominent user, former U.S. President Donald Trump.

His departure alarmed advertisers, many of whom abandoned Twitter when Musk lay off half of the company’s employees, including many in charge of content control.

According to Roth, before Musk took over as CEO of Twitter, around 2,200 people worldwide were dedicated on content moderation activities. 

He stated that he did not know the number after the takeover since the corporate directory had been disabled.

Under Musk, Twitter began to deviate from stated and publicly visible policies in favor of content judgments made unilaterally by Musk, which Roth claimed as a cause for his resignation.

“One of my constraints was that if Twitter were run by dictatorial order rather than policy… there would be no need for me in my capacity, doing what I do,” he explained.

According to Roth, the overhaul of the Twitter Blue premium membership, which allows users to pay for a verified checkmark on their account, went live despite warnings and recommendations from the trust and safety team.

Spammers imitating large public corporations such as Eli Lilly, Nestle, and Lockheed Martin deluged the launch.

Roth also said on Tuesday that Twitter erred in limiting the distribution of a New York Post piece that made charges against then-Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden’s son soon before the 2020 election.

However, he backed Twitter’s decision to permanently remove Trump due to the possibility of additional instigation of violence following the incident at the United States Capitol on January 6, 2021.

“We witnessed the clearest conceivable illustration of how things moved from online to off,” Roth added. “We witnessed dead individuals in the Capitol.”

Musk said on Nov. 19 the Trump’s account will be resurrected after a narrow majority of Twitter users voted in favor of a move in a surprise poll.
