Executive exodus guts Twitter's top management

STORY: Twitter faces an exodus of top managers following its takeover by Elon Musk.

Among a long list of people to go are the chief customer officer, chief people officer, a general manager and the chief marketing officer.

That’s according to a mix of Tweets and Reuters sources.

It wasn’t clear whether they quit or were asked to go.

Musk had already fired former CEO Parag Agrawal, as well as the chief financial officer.

He’s named himself the new chief executive, meaning he now runs five firms.

Many employees told Reuters they had little information about the future of the company.

Al all-staff meeting set for Wednesday (November 2) has reportedly been cancelled.

Advertisers are anxious too, worried that their ads could appear next to inappropriate material.

Researchers say hateful content has skyrocketed since Musk took over, with the use of some racist terms up 500%.

Now a coalition of activists are urging Twitter’s top advertisers to pull content if there is a move to limit moderation on the network.

Musk’s team is meeting advertisers in New York this week in a bid to reassure skittish customers.
