Twitter’s global public policy head Colin Crowell to leave


Colin Crowell, Twitter’s vice-president for global public policy and philanthropy, is leaving the company after 8 years at the role. “I’m looking forward to winding down at Twitter over the next few months and then kicking back, relaxing a bit, and enjoying time with my family,” Crowell said on Twitter. He didn’t give further reasons for his departure. Crowell oversees Twitter’s lobbying efforts but isn’t a registered lobbyist himself.

Ahead of the Lok Sabha elections, Crowell appeared before the Parliamentary Committee on IT, chaired by BJP MP Anurag Thakur. The panel asked Crowell and other executives from social media companies to ensure that Indian elections are not undermined or influenced by foreign entities.
