We serve the
Straightforward means two things: simple and honest. A Twitter that is both of those things is a Twitter that will endure. We seek straightforwardness in our product and in our culture.
Unite profit and #purpose
A sense of purpose motivates us. Profit is how we expand and improve. Twitter is not a business—it’s a service with a business that keeps it going.
Be #fast, #free, and #fun
Our service is successful when it’s fast, free, and fun to use. Our work culture is a success when we can move fast, feel the freedom to work how we want, and have fun building something meaningful.
Talented, curious people make us what we are. Below you’ll discover a few members of the team. These are just a handful of people whose lives and careers shape Twitter.
A 360 view of human perspective
God-is loves stories. Stories that surprise us, enlighten us and connect us to all the points of view out there. She came to Twitter in search of a place where all stories can have value and reach, and everyone can tell their own story from their own perspective. It’s why she describes Twitter’s platform as “the greatest sociology project ever launched.”
Bend, don't break
If you boil a noodle and throw it at the wall, it’ll stick. Melissa thinks of herself as that noodle — she’s been flexible enough to make it through big changes and land at Twitter. But you never know what life is going to throw at you next. Empathy, support and flexibility are the keys to work-life balance.
Pizza, whales, and being real
Twitter’s transparent culture means that if you ask a question, you’ll get the most truthful answer, even when that answer is “I don’t know.” It’s where trust comes from. No one knows that better than Biz, who thinks Twitter’s “fail whale” moments are just as meaningful as its successes. In the early days of Twitter, a stack of pizzas showed him how being transparent inspires more trust than showing a flawless façade.
We are #OneTeam
Thaddeus knows what it means to band together and work as one team: it means everyone communicating across all departments to do what’s best for the public conversation. He’s been building start-ups since before “start-ups” were a thing. In 2016, he joined Twitter, where he and his engineers solve sticky problems through Twitter’s spirit of teamwork.
All in the approach
Our past experiences shape the way we approach the opportunities in front of us. Melba’s experiences growing up compelled her to make the most of every one. She pushes herself past her comfort zone every day, whether it’s by mentoring someone early in their career or building tools that help people do what they do, only better.
