A top Twitter executive responsible for safety and content moderation is leaving the company

FILE - Twitter logos hang outside the company's offices in San Francisco, Monday, Dec. 19, 2022. Ella Irwin, a top Twitter executive responsible for safety and content moderation, has left the company. Her departure came after owner Elon Musk publicly complained about the platform’s handling of posts about transgender topics.

Boreing tweeted that Twitter canceled a deal to premiere “What is a Woman?” for free on the platform “because of two instances of ‘misgendering.’" Twitter rules prohibit intentionally referring to transgender individuals with the wrong gender or name. Irwin tweeted Friday that “one or two people noticed” she left the company the day before, and she noted speculation about whether she was fired or quit. She teased that she would post 24 tweets to explain her departure.“In all seriousness, I did resign but this has been a once in a lifetime experience and I’m so thankful to have worked with this amazing team of passionate, creative and hardworking people.
