Twitter is what’s happening and what people are talking about right now. For us, life's not about a job, it's about purpose. We believe real change starts with conversation. Here, your voice matters. Come as you are and together we'll do what's right (not what's easy) to serve the public conversation.

The Creation and Conversations (C&C) Design Team focuses on enabling meaningful, engaging, and healthy conversations on Twitter. Conversations about what’s happening now are what people come to Twitter for everyday. The team also works to unlock ways to spark new conversations on the platform through the release of new formats, tools, and conversation mechanics. Whether you’re crafting the next viral Tweet, or you’re jumping in on a heated discussion in the replies, the C&C Design Team is the team that helps make it all possible. 

As part of the Design and Research organization at Twitter we do our work with a set of 8 principles in mind. It’s our mission to uphold these principles and have them reflected in the experiences we design and build.  

  • Stand for people: From helping people stay informed to engaging in the public conversation to growing their businesses, always advocate for what is best for the people we serve. 

  • Live in culture: Be immersed in and inspired by culture and counterculture.

  • Set standards & break records: Strive for greatness. Don’t shortchange, shortcut, or settle.

  • Work out loud: Share your work and your POV. Create generously. Be transparent.

  • Real talk: Give direct, honest, timely feedback that meets people where they are—and helps them along their professional journey. 

  • Always be learning: Run toward what you don't know.

  • Own it: Be responsible for your work, and accountable for the impact it has on other teams and those we serve. Bias toward action. Be decisive. Optimize to fail quickly, and iterate.

  • Soar:  Bias toward action. Be decisive. Optimize to fail quickly, and iterate.
