Our workforce stays indispensable, and our mission stays the identical: to supply a secure surroundings for all customers on the platform – on their phrases.”

Which is a weird paragraph on varied fronts, and plenty of phrases to announce the identify change.

Elon adopted this up together with his personal feedback, saying that:

“Any group that places “Belief” of their identify can not trusted, as that’s clearly a euphemism for censorship. Belief is one thing that should be earned. The objective of our Security workforce is solely to make sure compliance with the legal guidelines that exist already to guard the individuals.

Which can be a wierd assertion, however once more, the gist is that “belief” implies unhealthy issues in Elon’s world, so X received’t be utilizing that time period anymore.

X has additionally underlined its key objectives of defending its customers, resisting censorship and selling transparency.

Elon stays devoted to preventing censorship wherever he sees it, and ignoring it the place he doesn’t, with Musk himself persevering with to censor varied individuals, publications, and different entities, both through on-platform penalties or authorized motion, nonetheless he sees match.

So who is aware of what any of this really means inside his chosen context, however once more, the fundamental information is that if you wish to discover X’s “Belief and Security workforce”, you’re now solely searching for “Security” as a substitute.

Nothing adjustments operationally. Simply the identify.
