As it turns out, two – that we know of – executives both from Facebook and Twitter, respectively, recently quit their high-level jobs in order to join Biden's transition team.
Carlos Monje, who worked as policy director at Twitter up until this past September, will reportedly now be serving as co-chair of Biden's infrastructure policy committee, though his specific role has not yet been named.
Monje already helped to organize a fundraiser for Biden this past week, as revealed by an invitation sent to Politico. Monje has also worked on other presidential transition teams in the past, including as the director of agency review for failed presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.
"Monje also worked on the Obama administration team's 2008 national security working group according to his LinkedIn profile," notes Lucas Nolan, writing for Breitbart News.
During Obama's first run for office, Monje acted as deputy policy director, only to go on to become a senior policy adviser and special assistant to the president on the Domestic Policy Council. Monje spent his final years within the Obama administration working in its transportation department.

Similarly, former Facebook executive Jessica Hertz has also joined up with Biden's transition team to become – get this – its general counsel to oversee ethical issues.
As the Biden campaign continues to struggle with news stories like the one published by the Post being shared on social media, Hertz's job will apparently be to ensure that fewer incriminating stories like this spread across the platform.
Much like how former drug company executives end up transitioning through the revolving administrations to work for the very government agencies that are supposed to regulate them, social media executives like Hertz are now transitioning into the Biden campaign where they will shape policy on behalf of their former employers.
Hertz's new job description explains that she will now be responsible for "enforcement, oversight, and compliance" with regards to the ethics plan that the Biden team recently unveiled.
In other words, Hertz will presumably work alongside the Biden campaign to develop policies that will protect Silicon Valley from facing scrutiny when it decides to pull the plug on President Trump, for instance, or on the Post.
Post op-ed editor Sohrab Ahmari was among the first to have his account blocked from sharing the bombshell Biden story, illustrating the power that revolving door politics has on digital free speech.
"I, an editor at The New York Post, one of the nation's largest papers by circulation, can't post one of our own stories that details corruption by a major-party presidential candidate, Biden," Ahmari tweeted in disgust.
Later on, the official Post Twitter account was blocked entirely, as revealed by business reporter Noah Manskar.
Twitter even went so far as to censor the government account of the House Committee on the Judiciary, which also tried to share the story in a tweet. According to Twitter, the story about Biden is "potentially unsafe," and thus cannot be shared.
In a statement, Facebook's Andy Stone indicated that the Post story will be limited in reach until "third-party fact-checkers" get the chance to "verify" it.
"While I will intentionally not link to the New York Post, I want to be clear that this story is eligible to be fact checked by Facebook's third-party fact checking partners," Stone tweeted. "In the meantime, we are reducing its distribution on our platform."
