Twitter activists contributed 561 through the Democratic Party-affiliated payment processor ActBlue, while just eight through its Republican counterpart, WinRed.

“One percent jerks. They have someone who’s actually given to the GOP. I’m stunned,” cracked Dan Gainer of the Center for Media Research, a non-profit conservative watchdog.

561 contributions made through Actblue in 2021 totaled $14,848.98.

“Their day-to-day actions also contribute to that political party,” Gaynor said of Twitter employees, who have been accused of censoring conservative remarks. “There was a time when you could give to a political party and still be fair, but that was a long time ago.”

The largest donation to a Republican: $250, went from former finance VP Rich Sullivan to anti-Trump Representative Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.).

Twitter did not return a request for comment.
