Minister told how to Tweet

28th July 2009

Ministers have been provided with guidance on how to use the social networking tool Twitter in a new 20-page document.

The document has been described as being 'a bit over the top' by its author, former minister Neil Williams, on the Cabinet Office website.

Ministers have been recommended to post between two and ten tweets per day on everything from upcoming events to relevant topical debates.

However, MPs should spend no more than one hour a day using Twitter, the report recommends.

Mr Williams, head of corporate digital channels at the Department of Business, Innovation and Skills, said he hopes that the guidance will be adopted across the board.

He blogged that he was 'surprised by just how much there is to say ... and quite how worth saying it is'.

Twitter recently published its own guidance for businesses using the service.

The social networking advice is intended to help businesses make the most of their 140-word character communications, as well as defining the site's basic vocabulary.
