Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey said in a new interview that the company is so liberal, that conservative employees do not feel "safe" to talk, and wants that to change.
Dorsey, who previously denied conservative tweets from Twitter censors, made the remarks during an interview with NYU journalism professor Jay Rosen for Recode Media.
"We also have a lot of conservative people in the company, and to be honest, they do not feel safe to express their opinion in the company," he said. "They feel silenced only by the general turmoil of what they perceive as a larger percentage of inclinations within the company, and I do not think that is fair or correct."
Dorsey went on to say that he wants to make sure that everyone who works on Twitter can express themselves.
"It does not matter where they come from and what their origin is," he added.

"They feel silenced," Dorsey said in a new interview, adding that he wants that to change.
"I think it is increasingly important, at least, to clarify what our own bias is inclined to, and simply express it, I prefer to know what someone predisposes rather than trying to interpret through their actions."

Dorsey said in response, according to the New York Post: "We do not consider political views, perspectives or partisan affiliation in any of our enforcement decision policies. Period. Impartiality is our guiding principle. "
