Data shows Twitter workers give Democrats more by a wide margin

According to data from the Federal Election Commission, 99% of online political contributions made by Twitter employees in 2021 went to Democrats.

Twitter employees made 561 contributions through Actblue, the payment processor linked to the Democratic Party, compared to just eight through its Republican counterpart, WinRed.

“The 1% is shocking. They have someone who really gave to the GOP. I’m stunned, ”said Dan Gainor of the Media Research Center, the conservative nonprofit watchdog.

The 561 contributions made through Actblue in 2021 amounted to $ 14,848.98.

“Their daily actions also contribute to this political party,” Gainor said of Twitter employees, who have been accused of censoring conservative comments. “There was a time when you could give to a political party and still be fair, but those days are long gone.”

Aside from online giveaways made through Actblue, several Twitter executives wrote important personal checks, the data showed.

Twitter CFO Ned Segal gave the legal maximum – $ 5,800 – to Rep Conor Lamb (D-Pa.).

Executive Seksom Suriyapa gave representative Ro Khanna (D-Calif.) $ 5,800, records show

Staff lawyer Evan Stern gave $ 2,900 to Sen. Mark Kelley (D-Az.) And Senator Raphael Warnock (D-Ga.), Plus $ 2,900 to Dem John Fetterman, candidate for the US Senate in Pennsylvania, according to the data.

Biggest Republican donation, $ 250, went to anti-Trump Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) Of former Vice President of Finance Rich Sullivan.
