Twitter’s Public Policy Director Leaves to Join Biden Transition Team
Twitter public policy director Carlos Monje has reportedly stepped down from his position to join Joe Biden’s transition team.
According to Fox News, reporting from Politico, Monje left Twitter’s Washington D.C. office on Thursday after taking part in a fundraiser for Biden earlier in the week.
Fox News reports that Monje, prior to starting to work for Twitter in 2017, served in former President Obama’s White House and Hillary Clinton’s transition team in 2016.
If one wonders why Twitter seems to have such a Leftist bias, they needn’t look far. Last month, it was reported that Nick Pacilio, a senior communications manager at Twitter, is a former press secretary for vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris.
Fox News reported at the time:
Nick Pacilio, a senior communications manager at the social media giant, drew attention to himself last week when he publically addressed Twitter’s spat with President Trump. The tech giant alleged the president violated its policies by sharing a video of a “Fox & Friends” interview in which he downplayed the risk of children contracting the coronavirus.
“The original Tweet from @TeamTrump is in violation of the Twitter Rules on COVID-19 misinformation, and we’ve required removal,” Pacilio wrote at the time.

However, as Pacilio states in his own Twitter profile, he is a former staffer for Harris.
According to his Linkedin page, Pacilio served as press secretary and deputy press secretary for Harris between 2011 and 2014, during the first part of her tenure as California attorney general. He joined Twitter in November 2014 as a senior communications associate and was later elevated to a manager position. Pacilio does not appear to be involved in Twitter’s enforcement process.
All while Twitter continues to censor and suspend conservative accounts, and “fact-check” President Trump on numerous occasions.
One would have ample reason to believe that Twitter is de facto run by the Biden/Harris campaign.
