Twitter Is Facing Gender Discrimination Class Action Lawsuit On Its 9th Birthday
Happy Birthday Twitter, your senior management staff is a sexist boys club! Like most tech firms in Silicon Valley, Twitter is no exception in partaking in the frat-like “no women allowed” mentality. This is not for lack of trying, as many women have tried to get into more upper-management roles, only to be shunned and fired.
Tina Huang, who is filing the suit, is a former Twitter employee who claims that she was overlooked for a promotion and then fired when she spoke up about it. Like with any company you love (I love Twitter), it’s always such a let down when you learn about the discriminatory inner workings of its higher-ups. Let’s hope Huang wins this lawsuit and shuts this boys club down. [The Verge]
