We’ve been reporting on how Elon Musk has been cleaning up Twitter. He just made another move that goes a long way to do that.
It was just announced that Musk has disbanded the “Trust and Safety Council.”
In an email to the council’s members, it was explained that as “Twitter moves into a new phase, we are reevaluating how best to bring external insights into our product and policy development work. As part of this process, we have decided that the Trust and Safety Council is not the best structure to do this.”
The message also thanked the council’s members for their “engagement, advice, and collaboration in recent years” but explained that under Musk, “work to make Twitter a safe, informative place will be moving faster and more aggressively than ever before.”
Twitter’s notice to its Trust and Safety Council added that members’ “ideas going forward about how to achieve this goal” would still be welcome and that Twitter will “continue to explore opportunities to provide focussed and timely input” on its work, just in other less-direct forms.
