And now it is my turn to say goodbye.
Yesterday was my last day at Twitter, as half of the remaining Public Policy team was cut from the company.

The Public Policy Team is responsible for managing legal and civic engagement on issues of freedom of speech, privacy and security. According to a report by Reuters, the team responds to requests from governments and other organizations to moderate content and set rules.
Since acquiring Twitter, Musk has cut thousands of employees. Then he had to rehire some. And then he made an effort to make Twitter work in such a way that people started to quit themselves.
