Project Veritas is back with a new series of hidden camera clips —this time, James O’Keefe & Co. uncover the ugly truth behind Twitter’s culture of censorship. Senior Twitter engineer Siru Murugesan says employees at the social media company are “commie as f–k.”
“Twitter does not believe in free speech,” Siru Murugesan said in one clip.“Elon [Musk] believes in free speech.” Murugesan claims many of his colleagues “hate” what might happen if the Musk takeover the platoform.
“Some of my colleagues are like super left, left, left, left, left,” said the engineer. “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.

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’s $44 billion dollar takeover of Twitter is on hold while he attempts to get accurate numbers on just how many fake accounts there are on the platform; he was originally told 5%, but it may be as high as 20%.
