Known sources and screenshots of her deactivated account seen by Fortune claim that Ella Irwin, Twitter’s trust and safety chief and one of Elon Musk’s top lieutenants, is no longer on Twitter’s internal slack. Irving turned down Fortune’s request for a response. Reuters verified Irving’s departure from the business.
Irwin, a former Amazon director who joined in June 2022—months before Musk acquired Twitter in November—quickly won Musk’s confidence and rose to the position of one of his top executives at the business.

Twitter’s director of trust and safety, Ella Irwin, informed Reuters on Thursday that she had left the social media business.
Irving acted as a content moderator in that capacity, but since Elon Musk, a billionaire, bought the firm in October, the corporation has been under fire for its insufficient anti-malicious material safeguards.
Irwin left the platform at a time when it was having trouble keeping advertisers, primarily because businesses were hesitant to be associated with offensive content.
Linda Yaccarino, a former NBCUniversal advertising executive, was introduced earlier this month as the new CEO of Twitter by Elon Musk.
Irwin’s internal Slack account appears to have been disabled, according to a prior report by Fortune.
