General counsel, Sean Edgett
Edgett joined Twitter in 2012, leaving his role as legal director of corporate and securities for NetApp, a network storage solution provider.
After being fired by Musk, he tweeted: “Twitter is full of the most amazing people. I have so much gratitude for my former team and colleagues. Keep taking good care of this place, Tweagle.”
Edgett was publicly praised by a number of Twitter staffers after his departure.
One user said: “I’m so proud to have worked with [Vijaya Gadde] and [Sean Edgett]: thoughtful, compassionate, principled leaders that made this platform safer … Their loss from Twitter will be felt immensely.”
Another wrote: “Sean – you are a legend. Thank you for your leadership and humanity always. It’s been a pleasure.”
