Citizens Information on Twitter: @citizensinfo

Twitter is a social networking website that allows its users to send and receive short messages (called 'tweets').

The @citizensinfo official Twitter account is managed by the Citizens Information Board. Our tweets aim to keep you informed of developments in public and social services. The Citizens Information Board's Twitter account is hosted by Twitter. You can find Twitter's privacy policy on the Twitter website.

If you follow us, you can expect tweets covering some or all of the following:


We follow relevant Twitter accounts, especially other government bodies. If you follow @citizensinfo, we will not automatically follow you back. However, if we do follow you it does not imply endorsement of any kind.

@Replies and direct messages

We welcome suggestions and ideas from our followers. In general we do not reply individually to direct messages as the limitations of Twitter's format means that we would not always be able to give you a full and useful reply. The best way to get in touch is through the Contact us page on our website.

Please do not include personal/private information in your tweets to us. Note that sending a message via Twitter is not considered contact with the Citizens Information Board for official purposes and we are not obliged to monitor or respond to requests for information through Twitter.
