Ex-Twitter Trust And Safety Head Has A Warning For Twitter’s Current CEO: “Be Worried”

Ex-Twitter executive Yoel Roth who ran Trust and Safety for Twitter took the stage at the last minute replacement for GM CEO Mary Barra at Vox Media’s Code 2023 conference. In this interview, he shares a lot of information about what went on behind the scenes at Twitter and the fact that he had to flee his home when Elon Musk via the “Twitter Files” misrepresented his academic work. But the most mind blowing moment of the interview was this warning for current Twitter CEO Linda Yaccarino:

“If not for yourself, for your family, for your friends for those that you love, be worried,” 


“You should be worried. I wish I had been more worried.”

I wonder how that hit Yaccarino who was waiting off stage to be interviewed next. In her Interview (you can watch it here) she said that she felt “well protected”. Whatever that means. But if you watch her Interview, it was pretty tense. And I for one would be mass emailing my CV to anyone who might hire me if I were in her position.

I encourage you to watch the entire interview with Roth and draw your own conclusions:
