— Twitter acknowledged that it has been hiring too many white and Asian men to fill high-paying technology jobs, just like other major companies in Silicon Valley.

The lack of diversity in Twitter’s workforce of roughly 3,000 people was spelled out in data released Wednesday by the San Francisco company behind the popular short messaging service.

Things look even worse when the numbers are boiled down to computer programming positions and other technology jobs that tend to pay the highest salaries. Just 10 percent of those jobs are held by women worldwide. More than 90 percent of Twitter’s technology jobs in the U.S. are being handled by whites and Asians.
