The Twitter Service organization is the heartbeat of Twitter creating meaningful connections with our customers that promote healthy exchange in the public conversation. We do this by developing customer support and enforcement solutions at scale in a rapidly changing and global environment. Whether we're optimizing operations, guarding the health of the service through proactive and scaled enforcement, or driving content and support channel strategies, we're with our customers every step of the way.
