Twitter's conservative employees "don't feel safe to express their opinions," according to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.

"We have a lot of conservative-leaning folks in the company as well, and to be honest, they don't feel safe to express their opinions at the company," Dorsey told Recode in an interview Friday. "They do feel silenced by just the general swirl of what they perceive to be the broader percentage of leanings within the company, and I don't think that's fair or right.

"We should make sure that everyone feels safe to express themselves within the company, no matter where they come from and what their background is."

It is not uncommon in this polarized political climate to be afraid to express your views, but tech companies, including Dorsey's Twitter and other social media outlets, have been accused of bias against conservative views.

Dorsey admitted in a CNN interview a month ago that his employees have a left-leaning bias at his company.

Then, before a congressional committee, Dorsey denied the expressed bias affects Twitter policy or enforcement.

"I want to start by making something clear: We don't consider political viewpoints, perspectives, or party affiliation in any of our policies or enforcement decisions – period," Dorsey told. "Impartiality is our guiding principle."
