Facebook and Twitter employees have given $2.7million to Democrats in 2020 - ten times the amount they have donated to Republicans - as big tech faces more accusations of political bias

Facebook and Twitter employees have donated $2.7million to Democrats so far in 2020, ten times the amount they've given to Republicans.

Data harvested by OpenSecrets.org revealed that of the $2.9million staff have donated to political campaigns and PACs this year, ninety percent went to Democrats and only $222,000 went to Republicans.

It's unclear how many donations have been made and how they vary in size.

At Twitter, 98.99 percent - $347,270 - of all employee donations to either political candidates or super PACS has been to Democrats.

Staff there have given just $3,556 to Republicans. Biden has received $66,000 as an individual but the majority of the donations went to organizations.

At Facebook, $2,409,464 out of $2,628,040 went to Democrats. Only $218,576 went to Republicans. Biden's campaign has received $645,152 from them.

I wish more had been done behind the scenes to kill the trolls and bots.
