Twitter has appointed Bukky Ojeifo as its new global head of culture and community following the departure of God-is Rivera, who previously held the position.
In her new role, the Nigerian-American marketing expert will continue to carry the company’s mission of serving diverse voices who contribute to the public conversation on the platform.
Before her new role, Ojeifo was the firm’s senior manager, global culture, and community.
Her main role at the time? She guided how Twitter amplifies and engages with the underrepresented communities that use the service.
Speaking to Amaka, an online publication focused on African women, she said: “I’m excited for this work to continue under Bukky’s leadership. She has been key to the success of the Culture and Community team and a passionate, creative, strategic powerhouse from the start.
“Bukky is the voice of the Voices – an intentional community builder and fierce advocate who strives to elevate and uplift in everything she does.”
