Twitter for Good
We reflect the power of Twitter through civic engagement, volunteering, and charitable partnerships.
Areas of focus
We’re committed to safety, equality, and free expression.
Our philanthropic mission is to harness the positive power of Twitter to make the world a better place. We embrace this goal through civic engagement and volunteering, as well as content and data partnerships with NGOs and charities around the world. Our company embraces this mission by focusing our support where we can make the greatest impact.
Internet safety and education
We support organisations that tackle online safety issues such as bullying, abuse, gender-based harassment, and hateful conduct. We also partner with organisations to promote media literacy and digital citizenship for youth.
The need for media literacy is now greater than ever. We have been working on programmes aimed at empowering our users to build their critical thinking and connecting them to resources in order to give them control over their online experience.
Freedom of expression and civil liberties
We support organisations that defend and advance internet rights and freedom of expression. These partner organisations include human rights defenders, journalism NGOs, civil liberties advocates and other public interest groups.
Universal access and adoption
We believe that all communities should have affordable access to the internet. That’s why we work closely with NGOs and charities around the world to enable them to share their mission on Twitter and to showcase the benefits of internet access through the compelling work these NGOs do in their communities.
We support equality and universal acceptance for all people. As part of this commitment we work with organisations to ensure equal opportunities in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) and computer science programmes for women and under-represented minorities of all ages.
Emergency response and disaster recovery
We are active global citizens. When emergencies or natural disasters strike, we offer tools and programmes that support communication between victims, first responders, and humanitarian relief efforts.
Serving our communities enables us to learn, connect, and grow together.
The philanthropic efforts of our Twitter employees around the globe help cultivate understanding, equality, and opportunity in our communities.
We work with non-profit organisations all over the world to help them with best practices to develop a more effective and engaging presence on Twitter.
In San Francisco, the @NeighborNest, located directly across the street from Twitter HQ, provides a family-friendly learning centre for the local community.
In Dublin, the #ImpactNest provides space and support for social innovation start-ups.
Several times a year, our employees participate in a global day of service called #TwitterForGood Day. We partner with non-profit organisations and spend the day helping them with their service to our local communities.
