There was no shortage of verified Twitter leftists who came out in support of the firing of Google employee James Damore after he expressed his own views about diversity at the company, but there were also many prominent Twitter users on Damore’s side.

Following Google’s firing of viewpoint diversity manifesto author James Damore, a broad group of prominent Twitter personalities took to the social media platform to decry Google’s actions. This notably did not only include conservative voices, but also liberals such as Bret Weinstein who are concerned about the state of free speech in America. We’ve collected a selection of tweets which represent the mood of the platform today.
