In a new Project Veritas exposé , an alleged Twitter engineer admits that the company has a strong left wing bias and “does not believe in free speech.”
In the video, Siru Murugesan, who Veritas describes as a senior Twitter engineer, was asked by an undercover reporter about Elon Musk’s purchase of the company.
The reporter asked if “there’s a difference between Twitter’s definition of free speech and Elon’s definition of free speech?”
“Twitter does not believe in free speech,” Murgesan said. “Elon believes in free speech. . . . Twitter wants to censor bullying and harassment and the idea of free speech is that you can bully and harass people. And Twitter does not believe in this value as a platform, because it’s not conducive to a business.”
Musk has previously defined free speech as “that which matches the law. I am against censorship that goes far beyond the law. If people want less free speech, they will ask government to pass laws to that effect. Therefore, going beyond the law is contrary to the will of the people.”
In a later recording, Murugesan suggests that the right thinks “it’s okay” to “bully a transgender,” but “the left does not.” He added, “we’re actually censoring the right, and not the left.” Murugesan said he believes the left would leave the platform if “harassment” was not censored and for this reason Twitter has a bias.
When asked what Twitter employees think of Musk’s takeover Murugesan said he’s “okay with it,” but said some of his colleagues “hate it,” because of their far left leanings. He told the reporter employees are “stress-eating” and “worried for our jobs.”
“Our jobs are at stake; he’s a capitalist and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist,” Murugesan explained adding, “we’re all like commie as f***.”
Murugesan said Twitter employees tried to “revolt” against Musk’s purchase but said “at the end of the day, [the] board of directors have the say, and then they acted on their best interests,” so they wouldn’t be sued by the shareholders.
