down on migration as he closed the our ports and titan bought us. you follow that many people trying to enter the through the so called malcolm. ah, i am eddie micah junior and you are welcome to the program. the founder and form i had of twitter apologizes for quote, growing the company to quickly as the new bossy mosque, least of nearly half of the stuff. now the outgoing employees, i filed a class action lawsuit against mosque saying he's broken the law by the billionaire says the lee of when necessary to cut costs. twitter the san francisco headquarters shut down on friday as the lawn masks mass firings got underway. soon former staff were posting messages on the platform about how
abruptly they were sacked, saying they'd been locked out of their work accounts with little information. some are already suing over the lack of advance notice. only way to go with find out would be not any phone call or any now from their employer or their boss. but just by seeing their for their work, laptop, automatically reboot and just to go blank. that's the way people would find out. but musk has defended the cuts, saying twitter is losing millions of dollars a day. oh, with children and hong before. yeah. okay. sorry. and a root major stops in some cases. it doesn't seem right. oh richard, now offering at all. but while must focuses on saving money,
critics fear that such drastic cuts to twitters staff will leave the platform used by hundreds of millions, struggling to deal with hate speech and misinformation. while johnny now from london is sar roberts, she is direct our, the center for critical internet inquiry that university of california los angeles, and an expert on content moderation on social media. hello sarah. so how are these layoffs likely to affect content moderation on twitter? yeah. my mom has just claimed in the video share that there's going to be no change in operations. and yet he's just flash the staff that manager the daily functioning of twitter. and that includes people who work in the content moderation part of the company. now based on what i've been told, only 15 percent of that direct production level content, moderation team was cut,
but the rest of the company is deeply involved in content moderation as well. it's an entire ecosystem, twitter, it's technical policy base. human rights based. there are legal mandates that need to be met. all of those people are gone. now, you know, mosque has talked about making twitter even for free speech. what are the implications of that? the implications of that is that the particular kind of free speech free speech i left the con valley and what that seem to mean is behavior unfettered by any consequences or rules or guidelines. one must complains about losing revenue from advertisers. it's in fact the advertisers who are frightened to be associated with a site like that where rather than free speech, it's really a free for all. when we talk about free speech, free speech can be hate speech. what is the risk of that against vulnerable groups?
the risk for that a very high over the past few years, twitter had been at great pains to try to make the, the platform, a safer place for all people, which includes people around the world, a global audience. this was an effort that was in all hands, effort required many, many moving parts inside of the company. the people with that expertise have mostly walked out the door. and as you noted in the report, there was really no knowledge transfer. people just kept over and their, their computer screen went blank. so all of that knowledge, all of the learning, all of the improvements to the site that have been happening over the past couple of years. really. it's an asset that, that, that must just really remove from the company. it's a bizarre thing to have done, you know, where does the research twitter and you've now started using a rival platform master, done what from to that?
well, what's interesting about mastodon is it's not a commercial platform, it's such a doesn't rely on advertising. it's not beholden to the mercurial whims of a billionaire takeover. it's kind of buying for the people. and it's not exactly a twitter or twitter analog $1.00 to $1.00, but it certainly has a lot of that flavor. importantly, a lot of twitter users are trying it out and checking it out for their communities are moving there. and so i followed my community, which is the academic twitter environment we're trying it out because most of us don't want to be a part of what's going on at twitter right now. ok, sam roberts from the center for critical internet to inquiry at u. c. l. a thank you. thank you. let's look at other stories making headlines around the world. for my u. s. president obama has born of a threat to democracy. i think campaign rally in pennsylvania ahead of tuesday's mid term elections. he also told voters the risk for fit and abortion right,
