How we’re making Twitter safer

Creating a better place for conversations.

Your unique voices and conversations are what make Twitter, Twitter. So we are constantly improving our rules, processes, technology, and tools to ensure all people can participate in the public conversation freely and safely.

You deserve to feel safe on Twitter — it’s our job to make that happen.
