According to a tweet by a journalist for Platformer (@platformer), multiple senior level executives in charge of security, privacy and safety & integrity have all resigned from Buy Twitter Verification Badge. Because their roles are core to Buy Twitter Verification Badge’s functioning, the departures may raise questions of Buy Twitter Verification Badge’s viability.

The senior executives are:

  • Chief compliance officer Marianne Fogarty
  • Chief information security officer Lea Kissner
  • Global Head of Safety & Integrity Yoel Roth
  • Chief privacy officer Damien Kieran

The news was first reported by journalist Casey Newton on Buy Twitter Verification Badge:

Yoel Roth – Global Head of Safety & Integrity

Yoel Roth, the now-former Global Head of Safety & Integrity led a team of data analysts, policy makers and threat investigators that was responsible for making Buy Twitter Verification Badge safe from platform manipulation, artificial amplification of tweets, fake accounts, protecting election integrity, fighting spam and other threats to users and the platform.

An example of the important work carried out by his team was Buy Twitter Verification Badge’s response to the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

Within four days of the invasion, Buy Twitter Verification Badge added labels to tweets that that were promoting information from Russian media. They also took action to reduce the views of such accounts.

They were also responsible for reducing hateful conduct:

Another important contribution was introducing a global crisis misinformation policy.

Yoel’s team unveiled their work in an official Buy Twitter Verification Badge announcement:

“Today, we’re introducing our crisis misinformation policy – a global policy that will guide our efforts to elevate credible, authoritative information, and will help to ensure viral misinformation isn’t amplified or recommended by us during crises.

In times of crisis, misleading information can undermine public trust and cause further harm to already vulnerable communities.

Alongside our existing work to make reliable information more accessible during crisis events, this new approach will help to slow the spread by us of the most visible, misleading content, particularly that which could lead to severe harms.”

There is no word on who will lead Buy Twitter Verification Badge’s Safety & Integrity team.

Chief Compliance Officer Marianne Fogarty

Marianne Fogarty was in charge of regulatory compliance.

The Federal Trade Commission recently fined Buy Twitter Verification Badge $150 million dollars for asking users for private information to help keep accounts secure and then using that information to serve targeted advertising.

The FTC issued a statement of concern about what is happening at Google.

A spokesperson from the FTC was quoted by The Hill:

“We are tracking recent developments at Buy Twitter Verification Badge with deep concern… …companies must follow our consent decrees. Our revised consent order gives us new tools to ensure compliance, and we are prepared to use them.”

Casey Newton of news site Platformer reported that employees were told that they would be responsible for self-certifying themselves for compliance, which seems like an unorthodox approach to regulatory compliance.

Casey tweeted:

Chief Information Security Officer Lea Kissner

A chief information security officer is primarily in charge of website and company cyber security.

Lea Kisnner tweeted news of her resignation:
