New Twitter CEO Elon Musk fired Twitter’s top lawyer Vijaya Gadde — head of legal policy, trust, and safety — immediately after taking over the social media company Thursday evening.

The Daily Mail reported earlier this year that Gadde “played a key role in the contentious decisions to ban Donald Trump and suppress news articles about Hunter Biden’s laptop.”

Politico reported earlier this year that after news broke in April that Musk would be buying the platform, “Gadde cried during [a] meeting as she expressed concerns about how the company could change.”

Musk also fired CEO Parag Agrawal, CFO Ned Segal, and Sean Edgett, the company’s general counsel, The Washington Post reported.

The move to fire Gadde and the company’s other top executives was widely celebrated on the platform.

  • Elon Musk on Thursday formally took control of Twitter, having made a high-profile visit to the San Francisco headquarters the day before - and tweeting on Thursday night: 'The bird is freed'
  • As soon as his $44 billion takeover was finalized on Thursday night he fired the CEO, chief financial officer, general counsel, and head of legal policy, trust and safety
  • Musk himself will take the role of CEO, according to sources who spoke to Bloomberg - although he may cede the role in the long term
