If you didn’t know already, the CEO of Twitter, Jack Dorsey has stepped down and in his place is Parag Agrawal. Agrawal said that he will focus on “clear decision-making, increased accountability, and faster execution,” and said he was “making a number of organizational and leadership changes to best position us to achieve our goals. … We’ve all discussed the critical need for more operational rigor and it must start from the top.

The reorganization is the first clear sign that Twitter’s new leader intends to overhaul a culture that has been considered slow to innovate and mired in internal conflict.
Dorsey was criticized and even sued by a shareholder over his dual CEO roles at Twitter and Square, the fintech giant that he also co-founded. Twitter had been slow to innovate, but for much of this year, the platform has rapidly added new features like its subscription Twitter Blue service, Spaces audio rooms, Super Follows, Ticketed Spaces, crypto features and more.  While also taking away new features like Fleets.  Agrawal has expressed interest in continuing to pick up the pace at Twitter. Hopefully this means that Twitter users won’t be suspended for sharing reels and tiktok’s on Twitter anymore.

Twitter has updated its privacy policy so that it can remove images of people that have been posted without their consent.
Under its current policy, the social media giant prohibits the publication of people’s private information, including addresses, phone numbers, identity documents and medical records. Now, it says it has added “private media” to the list, because the sharing of such material could be used to “harass, intimidate, and reveal the identities of individuals.”  Before removing the image or video, Twitter said, it would require a first-person report or a report from an authorized representative to establish whether or not the individual had consented to it being shared.
Once Twitter established that the personal media had been shared without permission, it would then proceed to remove it from the platform. Think Porn.  Think Personal images shared between people as Personal Media. ( This would classify revenge porn as personal media as well)

Also to note, Jack Dorsey’s exit as CEO of Twitter has sparked worldwide debate, including concerns about the tech giant’s plan to rely less on the First Amendment and more on “shaping” conversations. Last year, Agrawal said during a Technology interview that Twitter needed to “focus less on thinking about free speech” and instead ensure the platform’s moves “are reflective of things that we believe lead to a healthier public conversation.”

We shall see what happens next.
