The tweet did not specify a reason for the departure, but did express gratitude to some colleagues.
“I feel so lucky to have been part of something so special,” the tweet added, followed by the hashtag “#LoveWhereYouWorked.”
The announcement came around the time that news broke that Ella Irwin, the head of Twitter’s trust and safety department, had resigned — all while Twitter restricted the launch of The Daily Wire’s hit documentary “What Is A Woman?” on the platform Thursday evening.
As of press time, there was no confirmation that the departures were related in any way, but users quickly began looking through olds posts from Aiyed that showed a history of making comments that are dismissive of white people.

“There are so many people that don’t have people speaking for them’ ya like black people, trans people, Muslim people WHO +,” Aiyed said in one post in 2017, responding to a tweet that has since been deleted. “wouldn’t even GET the platform you had even if they worked twice as hard, so..rest assured, white men are represented. In ALL their views,” Aiyed added.
“[W]hite ppl eat half a shawerma wrap and be like AH LAAN! SHOE is mak . like wtf does that even mean mark . ur still not invited to the hummus,” Aiyed tweeted that same year. “[W]hite people act like flossing is a personality trait lmfao,” Aiyed tweeted in 2018. “[W]hite guys think buying Elvis memorabilia is a suitable substitute for a personality lmao,” said another post.
A search of the account’s tweets showed many other posts about white people over the years.
