Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey says conservative employees 'don't feel safe to express their opinions' and feel 'silenced' by their liberal colleagues

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said in a new interview that the company is so liberal, conservative employees don't feel 'safe' to speak up - and he wants that to change.

Dorsey, who has previously denied Twitter censors conservative tweets, made the comments during an interview with NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen for Recode Media.   

'We have a lot of conservative-leaning folks in the company as well, and to be honest, they don't feel safe to express their opinion at the company,' he said. 'They do feel silenced by just the general swirl of what they perceive to be broader percentage of leanings within the company, and I don't think that's fair or right.'

Dorsey went on to say that he wants to make sure everyone who works at Twitter can express themselves. 'No matter where they come from and what their background is,' he added. 

Last month, California Rep. Kevin McCarthy accused the social networking site of censoring conservative voices.

The interview was published days after Attorney General Jeff Sessions spoke about looking into tech companies like Twitter, Google and Facebook about the censorship allegations

Dorsey said in response, according to the New York Post: 'We don't consider political viewpoints, perspectives or party affiliation in any of our policies of enforcement decisions. Period. Impartiality is our guiding principle.'


He was slower than others to climb on the anti-Alex-Jones bandwagon

He wants Conservatives to speak up so he'll know which jobs can be eliminated in the next round of layoffs.
