The mission of the Health organization at Twitter is to keep our users safe from negative experiences in a highly adversarial environment. This aligns with our company’s top priority: growing the collective health, openness, and civility of public conversation.
The Health Signals engineering team is responsible for the platform powering Twitter’s ability to leverage signals to detect unhealthy content and interactions at an unprecedented scale. We work on some of the world’s most highly-scaled distributed systems, handling hundreds of millions of tweets and engagements each day. Our platform aims to streamline the production and consumption of Health signals generated using Machine Learning and other methodologies. We are also responsible for the lifecycle of a set of core health signals and enabling their accessibility. In turn, each product surface at Twitter relies on our platform and signals to keep our users safe.
