A Californian social media giant employs an overwhelming majority of staff who supported the Democrats at the November election, new data revealed.
Twitter Inc. workers and their families donated nearly 63 times more money to the 2020 Biden campaign compared to the 2020 Trump campaign.
Twitter employees and their immediate family members donated $193,443 to Biden’s campaign throughout the 2020 election cycle according to Center for Responsive Politics statistics obtained by Fox News. The group only gave away $3,023 to the Trump campaign in the same cycle.
The same employees donated $783,990 to multiple Democrats while only $12,333 went to Republicans.
Fox News was not surprised by the results, considering Twitter permanently banned former President Donald Trump from using the social media platform again back in January.
“Twitter gave Biden what Politico dubbed a ‘priceless’ gift when the social media platform permanently banned Trump,” FoxBusiness reporter Evie Fordham said. “Prior to the ban, Trump’s tweets often shaped the news cycle during his four years in office.”
Fordham suggested the Democratic Party rewarded Twitter and other social media companies with lucrative work for the Office of the President Elect after they allegedly censored the former president and his supporters.
“Big tech employees have landed top posts on the Biden-Harris transition team and Republicans are raising concerns that the additions to the team and the next administration are ‘evidence’ that Silicon Valley ‘works hand in glove’ with Democratic politicians,'” Fordham said.
Center for Responsive Politics data shows 98% of major technology companies donated to the Democratic Party compared to just 2% who donated to the Republicans.

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s (R-Ga.) personal Twitter account was recently suspended without notice after she repeatedly posted critical remarks about the professional conduct of fellow GOP Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger and GOP Georgia Voting Systems Implementation Manager Gabriel Sterling.
Twitter’s safety team locked Greene out of her own account for 12 hours for “multiple violations” of Twitter’s civic integrity policy according to Reuters.
However, Greene believes Twitter simply disapproves of her conservative thinking.
“The borderline monopolistic stranglehold a few Big Tech companies have on American political discourse is out of control,” she said in a statement. “American rights are being stripped away and they are not being heard by the people they elected to represent them. With Big Tech silencing them, they literally cannot be heard—the censorship has got to stop.”
She accused staff working for Twitter of trying to undermine free enterprise, private ownership, and socially traditional ideas.
“If a conservative dares to utter a political opinion that is deemed unapproved by the internet police they are now subject to false accusations of ‘inciting violence’ simply for having a conservative view,” she said.
She believes Congress should introduce legislation that prevents any American from being silenced for having different political views.
