Our commitment

We’re on a journey to become the world’s most inclusive, diverse, equitable, and accessible tech company — it’s key to serving the public conversation. Our path starts with having a Tweepforce 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:

50%

At least half of our Tweepforce will be women

25%

At least a quarter of our US Tweepforce will be under-represented populations

*Based on voluntary employee self-identification. Includes regular, full-time employees who completed our self-identification survey as of effective date. Percentages may not sum to 100 due to rounding and instances where Tweeps decline to disclose. Leadership includes directors and above. Technical is our functional designation and omits G&A and sales designations. “From underrepresented populations” for now includes Black, Latinx, Multiracial, and Indigenous populations. “Indigenous” includes Native American, Native Alaskan, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander populations. Data effective as of 3/31/22.

**Based on 72% of eligible Tweeps who participated in our new self identification program as of November 5, 2021.  “Military vets” include those who identified or had an immediate family member who identified as a veteran. “Tweeps with disabilities” include those who identified as a person with a disability. “LGBTQIA+ Tweeps” include those who identified as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, asexual, pansexual, non-binary, gender queer, gender fluid, gender non-conforming, with a gender identity not listed, or with a sexual orientation other than heterosexual that was not listed.
