Successful Twitter Not a Diverse Company: Overly White Male and Asian

USA Today reports:
Succumbing to growing public pressure, Twitter released the gender and ethnic breakdown of its work force Wednesday, showing that it looks like most other major technology companies: overwhelming male, white and Asian.

In the U.S., nearly 90% of Twitter's workers are white or Asian. And more than 90% of technology jobs in the U.S. are held by whites or Asians.

Men make up 70% of all staff but 90% of technology staff, according to figures released by the company's vice president for diversity and inclusion, Janet Van Huysse.
Yet, the diversity experts tell us a company must look like America to be successful! It appears not.
