Live updates: Twitter’s shareholder meeting

Natasha Lamb, from Arjuna Capital, presented a proposal asking the board to nominate someone with civil rights expertise to help the company address the spread of misinformation and other societal harms.

“Shareholders believe Twitter requires expert, board level oversight of civil and human rights issues to assess risk and develop strategy to avoid causing or contributing to widespread violations of human or civil rights, such as voter suppression, disinformation and hate campaigns, or violence,” Arjuna Capital wrote in the proxy statement ahead of the meeting.

Lamb went on to say that Musk’s impending purchase of Twitter is evidence of why the company needs greater civil rights oversight — so that a potential new leader with a pro-free-speech ideology cannot undo the work Twitter has already done on these issues.
