Elon Musk’s takeover of Twitter has come with its fair share of controversy and complaints, but Musk has insisted that his ideas will help eliminate hate on the platform.

And according to Twitter head of trust and safety Yoel Roth, Musk’s plan is already working.

“We’ve not only mitigated the recent surge in harmful behavior, but have reduced impressions on this content in Search by ~95% relative to even prior baseline levels,’ Roth revealed in a tweet. “We’re continuing our work to make Twitter safer every day.”

He added that Twitter has been able to do all this in less than a week.

“We’ve made measurable progress, removing more than 1500 accounts and reducing impressions on this content to nearly zero,” Roth tweeted.

Musk purchased Twitter for $44 billion and immediately began to make sweeping changes, starting with firing the CEO and laying off scores of others. He has said the social media giant will soon begin charging $8 a month for the popular blue verification checkmark.

All the while, he has defended his decisions and frequently responded to his detractors — including those who are considered celebrities — with snarky comments.

Tusk arrived at Twitter headquarters carrying a kitchen sink, as he relayed in a video. Since taking the job, he has changed his Twitter bio from “Chief Twit” to “Twitter Complaint Hotline Operator.”

He also continued to have fun at the many complainers’ expense.

“I love when people complain about Twitter … on Twitter,” he wrote, with a couple of crying/laughing emojis to drive his point home.
