Twitter 
for Good

Our vision is to bring our company and community together as a force for good.

AREAS OF FOCUS

Internet safety 
and education

We want to help educate individuals about healthy digital citizenship and online safety. We support organizations that tackle online safety issues such as bullying, abuse, and hate speech.

Free expression

and civil liberties

We support initiatives that defend and respect all voices by promoting free expression and defending civil liberties.

Crisis and emergency response

When emergencies and natural disasters strike, we offer tools and programs that help people around the world with communication and humanitarian response.

Environmental conservation and sustainability

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.

Equality

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).

KEY INITIATIVES

Use the positive power of Twitter to strengthen our communities through employee engagement, platform activation, and corporate giving.
