The tweets are running the asylum.
Twitter’s senior executives have a long history of anti-Trump hatred, a Post review of dozens of accounts of top employees found.
The venom, vitriol and, in some cases, vows to help Joe Biden across the finish line in next month’s presidential election continue to live online as the company earlier this week decided to censor The New York Post’s revelations about Hunter Biden’s emails to a consultant for the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.
“GET HIM OUT,” posted a senior site reliability engineer on Aug. 18. “What a f–king baboon.”
One manager with almost nine years on the job said he was quite keen to watch Biden “crush [Trump] in the election” and that he hoped the president would “be utterly humiliated while also suffering greatly from #COVID19.” In another post he fantasized about the president being put on a ventilator.
He calls Trump “a f–king idiot” and the voters who elected him — “hysterically f–king stupid people.”
At the same time the employee has been a consistent cheerleader of his company’s efforts to rein in the president on the platform and curb the spread of “misinformation.”
“I’m really proud of how quickly we’ve worked to make this possible for the US elections,” he wrote.
Others publicly wish the president harm.
One Twitter engineering manager said Trump should “die in a fire” in a January 2017 tweet. A year later, he rang in the new year by saying “Happy 2018! Donald Trump is dead!”
None of these comments have ever been flagged by Twitter or been subject to any other form of official sanction, even as the social-media giant dishes out discipline to others for sharing legitimate news stories that might hurt Biden. The company finally ordered the vicious tweet to be deleted on May 29 — years after being posted.
……Twitter’s “head of integrity” Yoel Roth was infamously busted over a series of old tweets revealing him to be a die-hard Trump hater.
……“It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out why they only selectively enforce these rules. It’s because the people who work there all believe the same things,” GOP strategist Chris Barron told The Post. “A liberal [verified account] never has to pay a price for advocating violence.”
“We do not hire based on political beliefs and completely support our employees’ right to express themselves and support the causes they care about,” Twitter’s Chief Human Resources Officer Jennifer Christie said in a statement to The Post.
The problem with Christie’s attitude is that their “right to express themselves” manifests itself in their hypocritical leftwing censorship on the site. Additionally, Twitter employees who happen to be conservative, don’t feel safe expressing their opinions.
If you’re going to be biased, as many media are, at least be honest about it. Don’t put up a facade of being nonpartisan.
