whistleblower Twitter

Anika Collier Navaroli is currently a Race & Technology practitioner fellow at Stanford University, where she studies the impact of speech regulation on Black content moderators and policy enforcers. In 2022, Anika gave evidence about her work at Twitter to the U.S. Congressional Committee investigating the 6 January 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol for which she received the Ridenhour Truth-Telling Prize.

Before Stanford, Anika worked in senior policy roles with the Trust & Safety departments at Twitter and Twitch examining the traditional balance between free expression and safety by developing and enforcing power-conscious global platform policy. Prior to that, she advocated from the outside, working for research think tanks and non-profits on issues of race, civil rights, and fairness within emerging technologies and on the need for systemic change in areas of big data and internet freedom. Anika also treasures her time teaching media studies and the principles of law and constitutional freedoms to high school students in Harlem.

Anika received a BS in journalism from the University of Florida, a MS from Columbia University Graduate School of Journalism where she wrote her 2013 thesis titled The Revolution will be Tweeted, and a JD from the University of North Carolina School of Law.
