Twitter Diversity Statistics: 70% Male Globally, 59% White, 29% Asian in U.S. [REPORT]

How important is diversity in the workplace? A KelloggInsight report documented how better decisions are made by diverse businesses, while Catalyst noted that Fortune 500 companies with the highest representation of women board directors outperformed those with the least by 53 percent.

Now, Twitter has released data that reveals the company’s ethnic and gender diversity, and it makes for interesting reading.

Post IPO, How Many Twitter Employees Are Now Millionaires?

Post IPO, How Many Twitter Employees Are Now Millionaires?

Twitter’s initial public offering (IPO) was, by all accounts, a huge success. The company sold millions of shares at its asking price of $26 dollar a piece and, at the time of writing, has a market capitalisation of $23.96 billion.

Of course, Twitter is still, relatively, a small company, and with that amount of cash being pumped into the firm, a lot of people did rather well. Indeed, by one estimate, some 1,600 Twitter employees are now millionaires or better. That’s the good news. The bad? Collectively, they owe more than two billion dollars in tax.

If It Really Wants To Succeed, Twitter Needs To Hire More Female Executives

A study from Dow Jones VentureSource last week looked at how women are shaping modern businesses, and found that startup companies with a high percentage of female executives are generally more successful than those who skew overwhelmingly towards men.

The survey analysed more than 20,000 companies, and Glam Media, a lifestyle content creator which runs a number of websites, was singled out for high praise amongst all startups, as 29 percent of its 28 executives are female.

Which contrasts somewhat sharply with Twitter, which has the heady total of one senior female executive within its roster.

Twitter Now Employs More Than 1,000 People

1,046 to be precise. Which means that the firm has been on a serious hiring spree.

Back in January, Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said that Twitter employed “about 900 people”. I’ve been tracking the company’s staff roster pretty closely for a number of years now and, by looking at the rate of employee acquisition since 2008, I concluded that Twitter should have been sorting out the paperwork for its 1,000th employee “within about six months”, which turned out to be a pretty good guess.

94% Of All Twitter Employee Tweets Are Sent Via Official Twitter Products [STATS]

Last April, I took a look at the products that Twitter staff members were using to send their tweets, publishing the results on our sister blog, Social Times. Back then, some 85 percent of all tweets from Twitter employees came via official Twitter products, with 32 percent of those from Twitter.com.

Fast-forward almost a year later, and Twitter’s stranglehold on how its employees tweet has increased – a heady 94 percent of all staff tweets now come from official Twitter products.

Twitter Now Employs 833 People, Targets 1,000 By Year End [STATS]

Last month Twitter CEO Dick Costolo said that the company now employs “about 900 people”. I’ve been tracking Twitter’s staff count pretty closely for a few years now, and while it’s certainly true that Twitter’s hiring spree is on a major uptrend, with some serious growth in the past few weeks, either Costolo rounded up a little, or Twitter themselves are slow to update their own data, because their current roster looks to be set at 833 people.

Impressive, for sure – and by my calculations, Twitter should hire its 1000th employee before the end of this year.
