Like many other tech companies, Twitter is largely made up of white, male employees, pointing to a lack of diversity in the industry. The company revealed statistics about its organizational demographics, noting that almost 60 percent of Twitter's U.S. employees self-identify as white. Just under 30 percent identify as Asian. Combined, blacks, Native Americans, Pacific Islanders and Hispanics account for less than 7 percent. Of Twitter's global workforce of around 3,000, 70 percent are male, and only a tenth of tech workers are women.
Facebook this week launched a feature that allows users to save content from their News Feed that they might want to read or watch later. Called "Save," it is designed help users who may be inundated by links to articles, music clips and videos to separate the wheat from the chaff. "Every day, people find all sorts of interesting items on Facebook that they don't have time to explore right away," said Jessie Baker, a spokesperson for Facebook. "Now you can save items that you find on Facebook to check out later when you have more time."
