Recognizing how important it is to safeguard public conversation, especially with the 2022 Philippine Election on the horizon, Twitter has assembled a team whose main goal is to identify threats from malicious actors, prevent platform and trend manipulation, and combat misinformation.

In other words, the team is pro-facts and anti-fake news. Its members consist of experts who are well-versed in the Filipino language and local context.

Twitter has also partnered with the Commission on Elections (COMELEC) and various local media organizations to promote voter education and create a safe, healthy space for election discussions.

Special hashtags such as #Halalan2022 and #BumotoKa come with links to the COMELEC and Vote Safe PH websites and customized emojis designed to help Twitter users discover election-related discussions.
