In 2014, Twitter openly admitted their struggles with diversity within the social media organization.
Well it looks like they’ve taken the necessary steps by first acknowledging the issue and then curating a plan of action.
And today, the social platform’s chairman announced that BET’s CEO Debra Lee has joined the Twitter board of directors!
