Twitter is what's happening and what people are talking about right now. Twitter is an open service that’s home to a world of diverse people, perspectives, ideas, and information.
We serve the public conversation.
It matters to us that people have a free and safe space to talk. That’s why we’re constantly improving our rules and processes, technology and tools.
We’re not perfect — that’s why we listen to you, the people on Twitter. It’s also why we work to be as transparent as possible.
We live by the following principles:
Freedom of speech is a fundamental human right — but freedom to have that speech amplified by Twitter is not. Our rules exist to promote healthy conversations.
Earning people’s trust
Twitter is what’s happening. To stay reliable and credible, we must always be earning your trust.
Making it straightforward
Simple is good, but straightforward is better. Our product, our behavior, and our work habits should all be transparent and to the point.
Uniting profit and purpose
Twitter is a purpose-driven company that does good. Visit Twitter for Good to find out more about how we tie philanthropy to our business objectives.
Being fast, free, and fun
We should move fast, feel free to be ourselves, and have fun. That’s Twitter.
We’re on a journey to become the world’s most diverse, inclusive and accessible tech company — it’s key to serving the public conversation. Our path starts with having a workforce that looks like the amazing people of all backgrounds and abilities around the world who use our service every day. We’ve made steady progress, but our work doesn’t end #UntilWeAllBelong.
Our 2025 vision
Our vision for the future is clear. We used the start of a new decade to set new ambitious goals for a more diverse and inclusive future. Here’s how we're holding ourselves accountable:
At least half of our global workforce will be women
At least a quarter of our US workforce will be under-represented minorities
