Sean Edgett of Twitter, Inc
View ranking table
Sean Edgett’s ability to remain “uncommonly calm under fire” was on ample display in late 2017 when the Twitter general counsel was called to testify before the Senate Judiciary Committee on alleged Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election via social media channels.
Commentators describe his performance before Congress as “a model in how to conduct yourself on behalf of your company,” applauding the “real grace and skill” in which he handled the hearing. Edgett’s broader role also sees him advise the company on a raft of challenging legal and regulatory issues facing the company, most notably on its response to data privacy concerns.
Edgett arrived at Twitter in 2012 and served in various senior positions within the legal team before taking on the acting general counsel role in 2017, assuming the full role shortly afterwards in 2018. He previously worked in the legal department of NetApp and started his career at Latham & Watkins and Akin Gump.
