Yoel Roth, Head of Site Integrity at Twitter, “leads the teams responsible for developing and enforcing Twitter’s rules on platform manipulation, spam, and API access,” he says on LinkedIn. He also leads “Twitter’s investigation and attribution efforts related to state-backed information operations.” However, it appears that Roth has a history of anti-Trump tweets.
This history calls into question “whether he should be creating guidelines for the president and other Twitter users, especially when Twitter is under fire for its alleged left-wing bias,” reported Fox News.
Roth said, “Yes, that person in the pink hat is clearly a bigger threat to your brand of feminism than ACTUAL NAZIS IN THE WHITE HOUSE,” in a 2017 tweet. Also, in a tweet from 2016, Roth mocked Trump supporters. There, he said, “I’m just saying, we fly over those states that voted for a racist tangerine for a reason.”

“I’ve never donated to a presidential campaign before, but I just gave $100 to Hillary for America. We can’t fu-k around anymore,” he said in another 2016 tweet.
In 2017, he tweeted a photo with the caption, “Massive anti-Trump protest headed up Valencia St. ❤ San Francisco.”
A Twitter spokesperson has responded to this story. “No one person at Twitter is responsible for our policies or enforcement actions,” he said. He also mentioned that “it’s unfortunate to see individual employees targeted for company decisions.”
Communications VP Brandon Borrman tweeted: “No one person here is responsible for our polices or enforcement actions. People who decide to target one person for decisions they don’t agree with know damn well what they’re doing.”
