Twitter’s ‘head of censorship’ – who banned Trump and squashed Hunter Biden laptop story – is pictured glaring at new boss Elon Musk hours before he FIRED her. By Jennifer Smith.
Just a day before being fired by Elon Musk, Twitter lawyer Vijaya Gadde was photographed glaring at her new boss in an awkward meet-up with other employees at the HQ coffee bar.
Gadde, widely considered the ‘head of censorship’ at Twitter, had been vocal in her criticism of Musk; she cried during a meeting in April after he first announced plans to buy the company. She was a well known Democrat donor and was behind the decision to squash links to a New York Post story about Hunter Biden’s incriminating laptop before the 2020 election.
Musk had publicly slammed her for the decision.
On Wednesday, she was spotted with Musk and others at the coffee bar at Twitter HQ. The next day, she was fired along with CEO Parag Agrawal and CFO Ned Segal.
But she walks away with a sizeable payout — a total of $72million in stocks that she owned, salary and benefits and stocks that had not yet vested when she was in her position but which are now paid out as part of the deal.
The Twitter censorship witch is gone
The big names booted from Twitter include Donald Trump, Roger Stone, Alex Jones, Steve Bannon and US Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene.
