The statistic provides the number of employees of Twitter from January 2008 to November 2013. In January 2009, the microblogging company employed 29 people. Prior to the company's IPO, this number grew to 2,300 employees in November 2013.
Twitter’s corporate demography
In 2014, the majority of Twitter’s employees were male with a share of 70 percent and of a white ethnicity with 59 percent. Hispanic and African American ethnicities were severely underrepresented with only three and two percent share respectively of all employees at Twitter.
Distribution of Twitter employees by gender and department in 2014 is revealing. In tech departments, 90 percent of employees were male. Men also dominated the leadership departments with 79 percent. Twitter was founded by Jack Dorsey, Noah Glass, Biz Stone and Evan Williams in March 2006 and since then, a man has always held top positions of chairman and CEO. The only department at Twitter whereby women were represented well was in the Non-tech departments. In 2014, women held 50 percent of non-tech roles.
The gender landscape at Facebook in 2014 was just as pessimistic. The distribution of Facebook employees worldwide by gender and department revealed that men dominated the tech departments with an 85 percent share and senior level positions with a 77 percent share. Non-tech departments were not as fairly represented as they were at Twitter, with men dominating once again with 53 percent.
It will be interesting to see if the gender and ethnic distribution of the world’s leading social network companies improves in the future.
