These 5 rules apply to tweeting about my employer’s organisational structure, procedures, communications and decisions.
X = news organisations, bad hackers, disgruntled followers, etc.
Y = the United Kingdom, the government digital service or myself
Z = colleagues, other departments or suppliers
- Don’t tweet when your judgment is impaired
- What could X do against Y with my tweet?
- Could my tweet impact relations with Z?
- If not sure, don’t tweet, ask boss
- Boss not available? Don’t tweet.
