Back in January, Twitter launched, a site dedicated to showing the ways that Twitter is helping the world. Now, they've launched a Twitter account for it. Today, co-founder Biz Stone tweeted about it:

We've set up a new account called @hope140 and it will be Good.Wed Jun 23 12:55:33 via Twitter for iPhone

It's a bit surprising that this Twitter account had not been set up until now, given that it's run by Twitter itself, but either way it's here now, and you can follow it.

Here's the description of as displayed on the site:

At Twitter, one thing that drives us is our desire to make a lasting impact as a company. Being a force for good is at the heart of that mission. Looking outside the walls of Twitter HQ we see lots of good stuff happening all the time, which invokes an incredible sense of hope that keeps us going.

The open exchange of information is just beginning to become an everyday part of how the world communicates. As folks like you spread positive knowledge through the platform, we'll be collecting it and highlighting good social movements that you might want to get involved in. So drop in every once in a while to see what's happening.

So far, there's only a single Tweet on the new Twitter account, but based on Biz's promise in the above tweet, it's going to be good.
