Like many other big companies in the US, Twitter has a very low number of Black and Hispanic workers. Twitter is said to have only has 49 black employees out of 2,910 staff members in America. The 35 men and 14 women account for just 1.7 % of the Twitter’s US operation, which is 93.8% white or Asian. This is despite the fact that the company’s senior executives promised to boost their number of African American staff from 2% last year.
Popular civil rights leader, Rev Jesse Jackson has slammed the company after the release of the compulsory Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) report saying that people are ‘becoming intolerant’ of the lack of progress.
He said:

I'm originally from Puerto Rico. I was born in Santurce and raised in Rio Piedras. Have lived in Florida since 1999. I have a doctorate degree in Medicine; completed in 1976. My Internal Medicine specialty was completed in 1979. Worked for Puerto Rico's health system until 1985. At this time, I'm happily retired after working for the federal government for almost 28yrs. I want to offer any knowledge that I have to anyone "out there" who is interested. My views are liberal in almost every sense. My knowledge is "eclectic" - a bit of everything. Music and reading are my passion. Blogging has also become a very interesting endeavor. Metaphysical topics attract me. I'm interested in news reporting human issues like injustice, discrimination and abuse - the "wrongly" affected. My intention is to bring this knowledge to an understandable level and to help anyone in need. I'm open to questions and will answer them to the best of my ability. Currently working on an enterprise whose main mission will be to bring peoples of all walks of life together. To be one .... since we ALL are ONE!! The future looks bright and promising!!!
