TechCrunch: Twitter is now specifically focusing on increasing black, Latinx and female representation. “Twitter met or surpassed many of the diversity and inclusion goals it set for itself for 2017, the company announced today. Twitter is now 38.4 percent female, compared to 37 percent in 2016. Regarding underrepresented minorities at Twitter, representation increased from 11 percent in 2016 to 12.5 percent in 2017. Though, Twitter’s process for defining URMs is to include people who declined to self-identify, which is a undoubtedly a weird way to do things.”
