Kelly Ellis, an e-celebrity of sorts within the tech industry, made semi-famous by past sexual harassment at Google — is once again in the spotlight of one-sided staff collusion at Twitter.
Ellis recently got into a short 3-Tweet argument with MicroChip™ regarding an ongoing campaign to hold Twitter accountable, where she indicated that she was making her friends on the Twitter Trust & Safety team aware of him & the campaign.
Undoubtedly, this is an admission of direct collusion with Twitter Trust & Safety — specifically.
This is a rather grave conflict of interest, as Ellis previously indicated that she hoped U.S. President Donald Trump would be assassinated or die very painfully, yet received no suspension:
This type of speech is definitively against both the old as well as new Twitter Rules.
Violent threats (direct or indirect): You may not make threats of violence or promote violence, including threatening or promoting terrorism.
It also isn't the first time Ellis has Tweeted about wanting Trump to die:
The account she is replying to (Rusty Foster), which has been set to private, seemingly indicates a potential affiliation with ANTIFA.
When these posts were Tweeted out by Ellis, she was being followed by Twitter Anti-Abuse (Support) Manager Alex Wu, which makes this a rather blatant example of double standards. Especially given now admitted direct ties to Twitter Trust & Safety.
Ellis has previously boasted about an employment blacklist in the tech industry.
As well, when this was first reported on by former State Assistant For Donald Trump (MA) James Brower, it lead to the suspension of his Medium account which he had to used to cover the story. Brower had also reported on how another employee followed a doxing account.
Intriguingly, reporting on a former Medium employee by using said platform, may have been the cause of Brower's suspension.
Ellis later lied about being followed by Wu:
Despite him still following her as of this posting.
This also isn't the first time an admission of collusion has been made, either:
Previously Ellis has also admitted to being in contact with Ed Ho, Twitter's GM, disclosed old messages between each other & vehemently complained that he wasn't doing enough to "protect her." Tweets.
Such complaints primarily stem from her Tweets that are at the very heart of this story, whereby her saying Trump should be assassinated or alternatively die as painfully as possible; which could imply torture, lead to amplification of & backlash regarding her words. Undoubtedly, then claiming to be the victim of harassment after technically engaging in the same & even far worse behavior — is how a child would likely respond.
UPDATE: Kelly Ellis has praised action taken by a Twitter Support employee, who briefly deactivated U.S. President Donald Trump's personal Twitter account, allegedly on their last day at the corporation.
Trump responded to his temporary removal:
Ellis also appears to be colluding with Randi Harper, who is offering "services" to the employee, in an attempt to prevent them from being identified or held accountable for their actions.
This is rather troubling, since the employee may have broken the law, given concurrent government contracts with Twitter regarding communication.
18 U.S.C. § 1752
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey seems to endorse this.
