Hi all, I'm Anusha, VP of Communications at the Foundation. We share everyone’s concerns on the direction of Twitter and very much agree that values are a big part of the way we communicate and show up in the world. Over the last several weeks, we’ve been watching this issue closely. There is a lot to look at—not just the communications outreach and technical bit of a presence on Mastodon, but also the legal, social, and safety factors like the data retention policy for an existing instance, the potential to access the private messages of accounts, or using Foundation resources for the tech and social media management of an account, and how this connects to our vision .
We want to be thoughtful and thorough in how we approach these questions and that takes time. We’re exploring with Foundation teams and we also have an upcoming meeting with the Communications Committee  - this is on the agenda. That meeting will help provide some valuable input and insights from community members in addition to what we’ve heard here. I appreciate the concerns and perspectives shared on this thread and elsewhere. We’ll update folks on the social media talk page  and welcome more thoughts there. Thank you.
