Twitter/Square CEO to donate $10m for EVERY SINGLE child in Oakland to receive a laptop

Oakland, California – After mayor, Libby Schaaf tweeted, “Meet Jessica. She is one of the 25,000 Oakland students who lack consistent access to internet or a home computer. Every student deserves the ability to learn from home. That’s why we are launching #OaklandUndivided, a $12.5m plan to close the digital divide for good.”

Jack Dorsey, CEO of Twitter/Square, responded back with a tweet of his own, “$10mm to give EVERY single child in Oakland access to a laptop and internet in their homes, closing the digital divide. Heard Mayor @LibbySchaaf and @OUSDNews call and funding immediately. Thank You!
