Top Execs at Twitter, Facebook Donated Tens of Thousands to Biden.
Leading executives at social-media giants Facebook and Twitter donated tens of thousands of dollars to the campaign of Joe Biden.
According to a review of Federal Election Commission (FEC) records conducted by Fox News in mid-December, several of the top executives gave the legal maximum of $2,800.
The FEC records show that Erin Egan, Facebook vice president of public policy, gave $2,800 to Biden's campaign on October 1, in addition to $2,800 she donated to the campaign during the Democratic primary.
Facebook chief revenue officer David Fischer also donated the legal maximum of $2,800 to Biden during the primary, along with $750 during the general election. David Wehner, Facebook's chief financial officer, donated $2,800 to Biden on April 22.
Four Facebook vice presidents --Gene Alston, Michael Verdu, Shahriar Rabii, and T.S. Khurana --likewise donated $2,800 to the Biden campaign during the 2020 cycle. The chief operating officer of Instagram (which is owned by Facebook), Marne Levine, also donated the maximum limit of $2,800 to Biden.
Also at Facebook, public policy directors Steve Satterfield and Michael Matthews and product manager Brett Keintz, along with director Ibrahim Okuyucu, each donated $2,800 to Biden's campaign.
At Twitter, meanwhile, vice president Matt Derella donated $2,000 to Biden s campaign in September. The company's senior director, Ryan Oliver, gave Biden $2,800 in March. James Kelm, senior director of product management, contributed $2,800 during the primary and another $2,800 during the general election.
FEC records reveal that dozens of Twitter and Facebook employees with "manager" or "director" in their titles donated at least $1,000 to Biden's campaign. By contrast, only two Facebook employees with "manager" or "director" in their title donated to President Trump's campaign; no Twitter employees with those titles donated to the president.
Despite the major imbalance, Twitter spokesman Trenton Kennedy told Fox News that the company has "stated many times--that we enforce the Twitter rules judiciously and impartially for everyone on our service."
