San Francisco: Ella Irwin has stepped down from her position as Twitter's head of trust and safety, becoming the second person to leave the role since Elon Musk acquired the social media platform.

The resignation comes amid ongoing concerns about content moderation and protection against harmful material.

According to reports, Irwin confirmed her resignation to Reuters shortly after her internal Slack account was deactivated, as noted by Fortune.

Content moderation has been a contentious issue for Twitter, which has faced criticism for its handling of harmful content since Musk's takeover in October.

Following Musk's acquisition, approximately 15% of the trust and safety department was laid off as part of a broader reduction in the company's workforce.

Yoel Roth, the former head of the department, resigned in November and was succeeded by Irwin.
