Warren received about $150,000 from employees of Facebook, Apple, Amazon, Microsoft and Alphabet between July and September, according to an analysis by Vox released Thursday.

Almost half of those individual donations came from workers at Alphabet, which operates Google and YouTube.

Warren's fundraising from individual donors within technology companies comes even as she has pushed to break up top firms in the sector including Facebook, Google and Amazon, though other 2020 Democrats have also been critical of the sector.

"Elizabeth will break up big tech. They have bulldozed competition, used our private information for profit, and tilted the playing field against everyone else," Warren's campaign told The Hill.
