Totally believable. Someday I'll tell the story of how in a 6-month period
* I was hired at Twitter to manage a growing anti-abuse team
* hiring was frozen
* an exec seized control for his own glory
* my team was decimated
* I and others were laid off
* I got no severance https://t.co/ZXqt0RvPpJ
What I would like to be true: social media execs fight abuse because they don't want their platforms to be instruments of injury, oppression, and harm to society.
What I think is really true: execs treat abuse as a PR problem. They do the minimum to make the shame stop.
When an individual human feels shame but not guilt, that's a problem. It leads not to moral behavior, but to *performing* morality until the heat is off. We'd probably call a person like that a narcissist.
