Twitter for Good
Using the positive power of Twitter to strengthen our communities
Our company is built on community. Together, we can be a force for good.
We use the positive power of Twitter to strengthen our communities through our platform, people, and profits.
AREAS OF FOCUS
Internet safety and education
We help people understand healthy digital habits and online safety. We support organizations that tackle issues like bullying, abuse, and hate speech. We support initiatives that defend and respect all voices by promoting free expression and defending civil liberties.
Freedom of speech and civil liberties
We support initiatives that defend and respect all voices by promoting free expression and defending civil liberties.
We support equality and universal acceptance for all people, and recognize that while talent is found everywhere in the world, opportunity is not. We work with organizations dedicated to promoting equal opportunity, particularly in science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM).

We work with nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) around the globe to harness the power of Twitter to raise awareness and encourage action to protect environmental conservation and sustainability.
