Even after the huge job cut last November, Twitter on Friday reportedly made another job cut in its trust and safety team handling global content moderation and in the unit related to hate speech and harassment.
Those affected were workers in the company’s Dublin and Singapore offices. Both the company’s new hires such as Nur Azhar Bin Ayob who was meant to head the company’s integrity for the Asia-Pacific region and Analuisa Dominguez, a senior director of revenue policy, were among those affected by the job cut.
Workers on teams handling policy on misinformation, global appeals, and state media on the platform were also eliminated, the report added.
The news of the job cut was made known by the company’s trust and safety VP, Ella Irwin, in a report to Reuters, stating that the company made some job cuts in the trust and safety team on Friday night even though there weren’t further details.
“We have thousands of people within Trust and Safety who work content moderation and have not made cuts to the teams that do that work daily,” she said via email.
Some of the cuts, she added, were in areas that lacked sufficient volume going forward or where it made sense to consolidate.
Twitter isn’t the only tech company going through the severe job cut phase as the likes of Amazon, Salesforce, and Meta have all reported on their planned job cuts with Meta cutting over 11,000 jobs last year.
