Around 00206.3 per cent of Twitter's US workforce were Black by August this year, according to the company.


Dalana Brand, Twitter's Head of Inclusion & Diversity, said in a blog post "These numbers aren't nearly big enough, especially in technical and leadership roles, but they do show that Twitter strives to be a leader of our industry when it comes to representation of Black employees."


"It's one of the first messages we deliver to all new Tweeps on Day One in #FlightSchool, our new hire orientation," she added.


Last week, Swiss engineering and technology company ABB also unveiled a new diversity and inclusion strategy to double the proportion of female managers across the world by 2030.
