Elon Musk’s Twitter Saga: More Twitter Officials Leave and Dismantle Top Management

In a growing exodus of Twitter’s top management, officials including its advertising and marketing chiefs have left the company in recent days, according to statements and a person with direct knowledge of the matter.

The departure comes after billionaire Elon Musk’s $44 billion acquisition of the company last week, followed by his resignation of CEO Parag Agrawal, Chief Financial Officer Ned Segal, and legal affairs and policy chief Vijaya Gadde, Reuters reported, citing sources. .

Sarah Personette, who was chief customer officer and advertising executive, tweeted Tuesday that she resigned last week, adding to advertisers’ uncertainty about how the social media company under Musk will change.

Chief People and Diversity Officer Dalana Brand announced in a LinkedIn message on Tuesday that she had also resigned last week. General Manager for Core Technologies Nick Caldwell confirmed his departure on Twitter and changed his profile bio to “former Twitter exec” Monday night.

Chief marketing officer Leslie Berland, Twitter’s head of product Jay Sullivan, and its vice president of global sales, Jean-Philippe Maheu, have also left, a person with knowledge of the matter told Reuters. It was not immediately clear whether they were stopping or being asked to leave.

Berland tweeted a blue heart but gave no details.

Caldwell declined to comment further. The other five did not respond to requests for comment.

Several employees who spoke to Reuters said they are still receiving little communication about the company’s future. An all-employee meeting scheduled for Wednesday was canceled following Twitter’s cancellation of a check-in call last week.

Musk’s team is meeting with advertisers in New York this week as the company’s increasingly skittish customers sound the alarm about the possibility of malicious content appearing alongside their ads.

Hateful content has skyrocketed since Musk struck the deal. Use of the n-word has increased by nearly 500% on Twitter, according to the Network Contagion Research Institute, which identifies “cyber-social threats.”

A coalition of more than 40 advocacy organizations, including the NAACP and Free Press, sent an open letter to Twitter’s top 20 advertisers on Tuesday, asking them to withdraw their ads if Musk dares content moderation on the platform.

Mediabrands, a division of advertising company IPG, has advised its customers to pause its ads on Twitter for the next week until the company provides more details about its plans to protect trust and security on the platform, according to a source familiar with the case.

IPG works with major advertisers such as Coca-Cola.

Musk has tried to reassure advertisers. “Twitter’s commitment to brand safety is unchanged,” he tweeted Monday.

He previously said he would roll back the Twitter ban on former President Donald Trump, which was kicked off over concerns he could instigate further violence after the US Capitol riots last year.
