12 Groups Behind Protest Of Musk’s Twitter Takeover Have Ties With
Gates Foundation, Soros
A dozen liberal groups that pressured Twitter advertisers to boycott
the platform in response to Elon Musk’s plans to acquire it received
money from entities backed by Bill Gates and George Soros, an analysis
of public filings shows.

In early May, a group of 26 organizations penned a public letter
claiming that the Tesla CEO’s takeover of Twitter would “be a direct
threat to public safety” and turn the platform into “a cesspool of
misinformation.” The letter called for Twitter’s top advertisers to
“hold [Musk] to account” by committing to “non-negotiable” standards
for doing business with the site, one of which is to not restore the
accounts of political and public figures banned for “egregious
violations of Twitter Rules.” The letter contained the logos of
Accountable Tech, Media Matters for America, and UltraViolet Action.
An analysis of the public filings and records shows that at least 11
of the letter’s signatories or their affiliated groups have taken
money from organizations funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates
Foundation. One of the three groups leading the letter has received
over $1 million from billionaire financer George Soros’s grant-making
network Open Society Foundations, while the two others were founded in
part by former staffers for Barack Obama and Hilary Clinton.
Eight signatories also collected roughly $10.25 million in federal
grants and loans between 2020 and 2021, public records show.
The New Venture Fund, the recipient of more than $500 million in
grants from the Gates Foundation since 2012, in 2020 gave $180,000 in
total to two signees, Media Matters for America and Center for Media
Justice. Another $11.2 million of the New Venture Fund’s 2020 grant
money went to North Fund, a shadowy progressive nonprofit based in
Washington that funnels money to a number of other activist groups,
including Accountable Tech, which published the letter.
Accountable Tech’s website shows that two members on its team—its
co-founder and digital director—worked for Clinton’s 2016 presidential
Founded in 2004, Media Matters for America describes itself as a
“progressive research and information center dedicated to
comprehensively monitoring, analyzing, and correcting conservative
misinformation in the U.S. media.” A key function of the organization
is to provide tools for monitoring what it considers to be
“conservative misinformation,” which it defines to be “news or
commentary that is not accurate, reliable, or credible and that
forwards the conservative agenda.”
The Center for Media Justice, which in 2019 was rebranded to
MediaJustice, aims to promote “racial, economic, and gender justice in
a digital age,” its website states.

Tides Foundation, a Gates Foundation grantee since at least 2013, has
handed over $2.34 million to eight of the signatories or their
affiliates over a three year-period since 2019.
Among the recipients is Indivisible Project and its nonprofit
charitable arm Indivisible Civics that work to “defeat the Trump
agenda,” of which the signatory Indivisible Northern Nevada is a local
The other seven signatories that received money from Tides Foundation
in the past three years are: women’s advocacy group UltraViolet
Action; environmentalist groups Union of Concerned Scientists and
Friends of the Earth; pro-abortion association NARAL Pro-Choice
America; Black Lives Matter South Bend, a local chapter of the Black
Lives Matter Global Network Foundation; GLAAD, which monitors media
portrayal of LGBTQ groups; and Media Matters Action Network, a partner
project of Media Matters for America.
UltraViolet Action’s board chair and board member Karen Finney was the
Democratic National Committee’s first African American spokeswoman and
had served as the senior spokesperson for Hilary Clinton’s 2016
presidential campaign, according to the group’s website. Another board
chair, Arisha Hatch, was an organizer for then-candidate Barack
Obama’s presidential campaign in 2008.
Access Now, which focuses on internet accessibility around the world,
in 2021 received funds totalling $1.35 million from the Open Society
Foundations that Soros founded and chairs, along with grants from
Wikimedia Foundation, Microsoft, governments in Germany, Switzerland,
Canada, and the Netherlands.
Beginning in 2017, the Open Society Foundation has also awarded three
grants with a combined value of 1.625 million to Free Press, a pro-net
neutrality group that also signed on to the letter.

Musk had reacted to the boycott letter by calling for an investigation
of the signatories’ funders.
“Who funds these organizations that want to control your access to
information? Let’s investigate …” he wrote on Twitter on May 3,
adding: “Sunlight is the best disinfectant.”
He later made note of a report that some signatories received funding
from Soros and European governments. “Interesting. I wonder if those
funding these organizations are fully aware of what the organizations
are doing,” he wrote.
Twitter in recent years has drawn criticism for censoring and
suspending conservative users. Among its list of banned public figures
are former President Donald Trump, Georgia GOP Rep. Marjorie Taylor
Greene, COVID-19 vaccine critic Dr. Robert Malone, and retired Lt.
Gen. Michael Flynn.
Musk has called Twitter’s ban of Trump’s account in early 2021
“flat-out stupid.” He said he would reverse the move if he becomes the
platform’s new owner.
At a recent Miami tech conference, Musk also said he would be voting
Republican after having “voted overwhelmingly for Democrats.” He
described the $44 billion deal as “not some right-wing takeover,” but
instead a “moderate take over and an attempt to ensure that people of
all political beliefs feel welcome on a digital town square and they
can express their beliefs without fear of being banned or
The Gates Foundation connections were first reported by Breitbart. The
Epoch Times has reached out to all the named organizations.
