After some employees tried to prevent the streaming of the “What Is A Woman?” documentary by The Daily Wire while Twitter owner Elon Musk was out of the country on business, a second senior executive working on content and safety issues left the company.
According to The Wall Street Journal, A.J. Brown, Twitter’s head of brand safety and ad quality, has left the company. Thursday afternoon, Ella Irwin, head of Twitter’s trust and safety department, announced her sudden resignation.
Both left as events transpired on Thursday night when Twitter tried to block The Daily Wire from streaming the documentary. Musk made the announcement on Twitter.
To celebrate its one-year anniversary and keep the conversation about radical transgender mania going, The Daily Wire posted the 90-minute documentary featuring Matt Walsh on Twitter at 8 p.m. EST on Thursday night, where it could be viewed for free for 24 hours. However, Twitter classified the documentary as “hateful conduct” and limited its distribution due to two instances of alleged “misgendering.” In the hours leading up to the film’s airing, Musk turned to Twitter to insist that the restrictions were in error.
On Friday morning, Musk took matters into his own hands and unlocked the video, allowing his 140 million followers to like and retweet the documentary.
After receiving a boost from Musk, who has the most influential account on the network, the Daily Wire tweet promoting the film received 80 million views in less than 24 hours.
