While no one knows who won the presidential election yet, Twitter employees and other Big Tech players are upset that Republicans even have a fighting chance.
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey liked a tweet that said, “[Y]ang would have won.” But his employees tweeted out their raw leftist reactions as the polls closed on election night. “[W]e can agree that this is a very sad moment,” said Twitter Product Designer Andrew Courter at 2:30 am. The Global Director of Culture and Community at Twitter, God-is Rivera, tweeted, “I’ll never get over it. Time after time this country cuts its nose to spite its face and will obstruct evolution, growth, and even it’s own well-being to uphold the destructive caste system this country was built on. It’s shameful.”
Twitter Director of Product Design Joshua C. Harris didn’t appear to be happy that Senators Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and Lindsay Graham (R-SC) had been re-elected. He tweeted, “Lyndsey Graham and Mitch McConnell already back in the Senate. Not to mention Madison Cawthorn in the House. Welp, I’ve seen enough for tonight. Good night Amerikkka.”
A couple of Twitter employees decided to dunk on Florida after some news outlets called the state for President Donald Trump. Twitter engineering manager Amro Mousa tweeted, “I’m just gonna come out and say it: Florida does not deserve Disney World.” Twitter Head of Global Business Partners Stephanie Prager tweeted a GIF of Bugs Bunny sawing off the state of Florida into the ocean. Given that Twitter seemed to balk at removing a violent tweet from Trevor Noah’s The Daily Show, which showed Florida being nuked by the Death Star, it makes sense that employees sympathized.
In a 2018 interview with CNN, Dorsey admitted, “We need to constantly show that we are not adding our own bias, which I fully admit is left, more left-leaning, and I think it’s important to articulate our bias and to share it with people so people understand us.” The bias seems to stretch into who gets censored on Twitter and who doesn’t: Trump’s tweets were labeled during the election night, and over the past year Trump was censored 64 times by Twitter, while Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was not.
