Twitter cut 15 percent of its trust and security staff, but says it won’t affect moderation

The daily number of “mitigation actions affected” has “remained stable,” Roth said, although he only supported that claim with a fuzzy graph by the number of tweets that are “reviewed and executed daily.” Musk made a contention claim of his own Friday night, claim that “we’ve seen hate speech at times this week that fell *below* our previous standards.”

However, Twitter had to “deprioritize a few workflows” such as helping with lost password requests and “some” suspension appeals, according to Roth. Twitter is working to get these back online in the coming days.

Moderation on Twitter has been a concern ahead of next week’s US midterm elections, but election integrity remains a “top priority.” Roth said:. Musk, who said last week that Twitter will introduce a “content moderation board,” also underlined Twitter’s focus on moderation: “Once again, to be crystal clear, Twitter’s strong commitment to content moderation remains absolutely unchanged.” he tweeted on Friday.
