Senior Twitter engineer says the social media giant is "censoring the right" and that he and his co-workers are communists.

A senior Twitter engineer has been secretly recorded admitting that the social media giant is “censoring the right” — and that he and his co-workers are “Commie as f–k. “Twitter does not believe in free speech,” Siru Murugesan said in a series of hidden-camera clips released late Monday by Project Veritas.

A senior Twitter engineer has been secretly recorded admitting that the social media giant is “censoring the right” — and that he and his co-workers are “Commie as f–k.”

“Twitter does not believe in free speech,” Siru Murugesan said in a series of hidden-camera clips released late Monday by Project Veritas.

“Elon [Musk] believes in free speech,” added Murugesan, who claimed that many of his colleagues “hate” what might happen if the Tesla founder’s on-hold $44 billion takeover goes through.

“Some of my colleagues are like super left, left, left, left, left,” said the engineer, adding that many have threatened to quit if Musk takes over and enforces his free-speech model.

“Our jobs are at stake — he’s a capitalist, and we weren’t really operating as capitalists, more like very socialist,” Murugesan said. “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 said of staffers’ nickname for woke California.

“Twitter does not believe in free speech,” Siru Murugesan said.

Murugesan was also filmed admitting that the company’s left-wing slant directly affects content on the site.

“I don’t know [if] the two parties can truly co-exist on one platform,” he suggested.

According to Murugesan, right-wingers are more likely to tolerate abusive messages while those on the left will simply refuse and quit the site.

“We’re actually censoring the right, and not the left,” the engineer was recorded saying, later adding: “It’s true. There is bias. It is what it is today.”

Murugesan went on to say that while conservative voices were returning to the site en masse in light of Musk’s intended takeover, staffers have been “stress eating” and “worried for our jobs” after a prolonged period where “essentially everyone gets to do whatever they want.”

“If you’re not feeling it, you can take a few days off,” he was recorded saying. “People have taken months off.”

“Elon [Musk] believes in free speech,” Siru Murugesan said.


“I basically went to work like four hours a week last quarter,” he added. “And it’s just how it works in our company.”

Twitter did not immediately respond to messages from The Post requesting comment on Tuesday. Project Veritas also said the site had yet to respond to its requests for comment.
