Nearly all of the political donations made by Twitter and Google employees went to Democrats in 2021, according to data from the Federal Elections Commission.
Google employees gave $652,600 to Democrats and only $37,700 to Republicans, which means that 94% of political donations went to Democrats, according to FEC records.
Twitter employees made 561 contributions totaling $14,848.98 through ActBlue, an online payment processor for the Democrat Party. There were a mere eight donations made to Republicans through the GOP fundraising platform WinRed, according to FEC data. A whopping 99% of political donations made by Twitter employees in 2021 went to Democrats, the New York Post reported.
According to FEC data, Twitter chief financial officer Ned Segal donated $5,800 — the maximum legal donation an individual can give — to Democratic Pennsylvania Rep. Conor Lamb.
Seksom Suriyapa — who was until recently the vice president and head of corporate development and strategy for Twitter — donated the legal maximum to Democratic California Rep. Ro Khanna.
Twitter in-house attorney Evan Stern gave $2,900 to Democratic Arizona Sen. Mark Kelley, Democratic Georgia Sen. Raphael Warnock, and Pennsylvania Lt. Gov. John Fetterman — also a Democrat.
The largest donation that a Twitter worker gave to a Republican was $250 to anti-Trump Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) — who is one of only two Republicans on the House select committee investigating the events of Jan. 6 — from former VP of finance Rich Sullivan.
"Their day to day actions also contribute to that political party,” the Media Research Center's Dan Gainor said of Twitter. "There was a time when you could give to one political party and still be fairhanded, but that time is long past."
Twitter has been accused of censoring conservatives and protecting Democrats.
Twitter has censored, suspended, or permanently banned conservatives or right-leaning individuals, including former President Donald Trump, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.), Rep. Jim Banks (R-Ind.), Steven Crowder, Jason Whitlock, Allie Beth Stuckey, Matt Walsh, Dr. Robert Malone, Dave Portnoy, Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, and Alex Jones.
Yet, in June, Twitter argued that a free and open internet is "an essential human right in modern society."
Earlier this week, Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky announced that he would stop posting almost all content on YouTube in an effort to fight big tech censorship.
The anti-Biden anthem "Let's Go Brandon" has been banned from YouTube and Instagram.
"From the top to the bottom, these companies are overwhelmingly liberal, overwhelmingly pro-Democrat," Gainor told Fox News. "At the top, they contribute to Democrat causes. At the bottom, they contribute to Democrat causes in overwhelming numbers."
