A top Twitter programmer was secretly caught saying that the company is “censoring the right” and that both he and his coworkers are “Commie as f–k.”
“Twitter does not believe in free speech,” In a series of hidden-camera footage published late Monday by Project Veritas, Siru Murugesan claimed.
“Elon [Musk] believes in free speech,” Murugesan stated, adding that many of his coworkers “hate” what may happen if Musk’s $44 billion buyout, which is now on hold, goes through.
“Some of my colleagues are like super left, left, left, left, left,” the engineer claimed, adding that several have vowed to leave if Musk takes control and implements his free-speech approach, per report.
“Our jobs are at stake — he’s a capitalist, and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist,” Murugesan explained. “We’re all like Commie as f–k.”
“‘I think it’s just like the environment, like you’re there and you become like this Commie — they call it ‘Commifornia,’” he explained, referring to workers’ moniker for enlightened California.
Murugesan was also captured on video admitting that the firm’s left-wing bent had a direct impact on the site’s content.
“I don’t know [if] the two parties can truly co-exist on one platform,” he said.
Right-wingers, as to Murugesan, are more inclined to accept nasty comments, whereas left-wingers will just reject and leave the site.
“We’re actually censoring the right, and not the left,” the engineer was overheard stating, before adding: “It’s true. There is bias. It is what it is today.”
While conservative opinions were coming to the site in droves in the wake of Musk’s planned takeover, Murugesan said that personnel were “stress eating” and “worried for our jobs” following a period in which “essentially everyone gets to do whatever they want.”
“If you’re not feeling it, you can take a few days off,” he was heard adding. “People have taken months off.”
“Last quarter, I practically worked four hours a week,” he continued. “And that’s exactly how our firm operates.”
Twitter didn’t initially reply to a request for comment from The Post. Project Veritas also stated that the website has not responded to their requests for comments.
