The letter begins, "As Twitter moves into a new phase, we are reevaluating how best to bring external insights into our product and policy development work. As part of this process, we have decided that the Trust and Safety Council is not the best structure to do this.
"Our work to make Twitter a safe, informative place will be moving faster and more aggressively than ever before and we will continue to welcome your ideas going forward about how to achieve this goal. We will also continue to explore opportunities to provide focused and timely input into our work, whether through bilateral or small group meetings.
"Your regional points of contact will remain the best people to contact to escalate concerns, please let us know if you need reconnecting. We are grateful for your engagement, advice and collaboration in recent years and wish you every success in the future. With best wishes, Twitter.
It was recently reported that "key" members of the Council, which was formed in 2016, resigned. Lesley Podesta, along Eirliani A Rahman and Anne Collier posted their resignation from the council late last week on Twitter, which read, "We are announcing our resignation from Twitter's Trust and Safety Council because it is clear from research evidence that, contrary to claims by Elon Musk, the safety and wellbeing of Twitter's users are on the decline."
This led to waves of criticism for Twitter 1.0's failure to deal with child sexual exploitation on the platform for many years.
