Yoel Roth, who is involved in the expulsion of Donald Trump, is the target of strong criticism from Elon Musk. The billionaire also set fire to the powder with serious insinuations.
Former Twitter trust and security chief Yoel Roth has left home to escape escalating threats against him, CNN reports. On December 12, new revelations were made as part of the Twitter files. This internal company information, which Elon Musk publishes through journalists, this time returned to the banishment of Donald Trump in January 2021.
As the social network’s head of trust and security, Yoel Roth was involved in the decision to remove the former US president from the platform. In a series of tweetsjournalist Bari Weiss reveals the internal Twitter exchanges that led to the suspension of Donald Trump’s account.
calls for murder
But it was before the publication of the fifth part of the Twitter files that Elon Musk had set fire to the gunpowder. On December 10, the billionaire highlighted old publications by Yoel Roth, including his doctoral dissertation. “It appears that Yoel is advocating for children’s access to adult Internet services in his doctoral thesis,” commented Elon Musk.
From then on, Yoel Roth was the target of a wave of threats. Many messages interpreting the tackling of Elon Musk accuse him of being a pedophile, while calls for murder have also been published. Several users of the platform have condemned a lack of moderation on Twitter’s part.
“Apparently Twitter Safety no longer removes death threats. The man featured here was forced to flee his home. Choosing to leave these threats online is a sociopathic and evil decision,” one person wrote.
“Elon Musk launched a digital horde”
“Watching Elon Musk unleash a digital horde on his former security chief, Yoel Roth, an openly gay Jewish man, is one of the most vile and disgusting things I’ve ever seen,” wrote Alejandra Caraballo. , an instructor at the Harvard Cyber Law School.
“He’s putting Yoel’s life in danger and he knows it. It’s sick, twisted and sociopathic,” she says.
These publications can only support fears of the turn that Twitter has taken under the leadership of Elon Musk. While the EU had reminded the imperatives of content moderation on the platform in early December, the new boss announced that he would do without people to moderate the network’s publications. This December 12, the head of SpaceX and Tesla also dissolved Twitter’s board and security.
