Who We Are

The teams in Twitter’s Trust & Safety department are on the front lines of safety, expression, and policy issues that affect the Internet. We write the Twitter rules and work to ensure user trust, protect user rights, and mitigate legal risk through policy definition, Terms of Service enforcement, and safety advocacy. Site Policy team members focus on a myriad of policy areas including hateful conduct, terrorism, violent extremeism, privacy, and crisis response. We innovate, experiment, and move quickly. We’re a learning organization with a growth mindset, and we’re always looking for ways to improve our policies, processes, and ourselves.
