Autonomy in projects
Transparency from immediate management
Consensus in team decisions
Transparency from the top, sometimes it's hard to know where Twitter is going when you read about it from ReCode and TechCrunch
Autonomy goes hand in hand with a high learning curve. I don't think that's necessarily a con as much as a facet of the autonomous team structure.

I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Twitter (Boston, MA (US)) in September 2019.
1 hour phone screen to assess technical skills. 3 90 minute onsite rounds to assess coding + system design + behavioral abilities.
One thing I really liked about how Twitter does things is that they give you detailed feedback on how you do in each round. This definitely helped me in preparing after the phone screen. I was told I did well on all technical portions.
One thing I did not particularly enjoy (but I understand) was the amount of focus on behavioral questions/answers. Even after the onsite concluded, I had two more 30 minute sessions with hiring manager and recruiter to go through more behavioral questions. My guess is that there were a few questions I did not provide too satisfactory of an answer, and ultimately led to the decision on not getting the final offer. Definitely interesting news and a bit of a humble pill to swallow if I'm being honest, but it is what it is.
Team and project I was applying for seemed really interesting and if I had gotten the offer I would have chosen this place to work at. Perks and benefits pretty much the standard in Bay Area. Alas I did not get it :(
