Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has a horse in the 2020 political race. That’s Hawaii Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard, an Iraq War combat veteran and anti-war candidate for the Democratic nomination. There’s something else that sets her apart from the rest of the wide Democratic field.
Gabbard is an early adopter of cryptocurrency. She disclosed last August that she had invested between $1,000 and $15,000 in Ethereum and Litecoin.
Dorsey has maxed out his political contributions to Gabbard’s campaign, BuzzFeed reported.
Not much is known about Jack Dorsey’s political views. He has said that his father was a “conservative Republican.” His social media platform, however, has come under fire for censoring conservative voices. Critics say Twitter is not evenhanded in the enforcement of its terms of service and suspends conservative accounts for violations that progressive ones are more likely to get away with.
