The @govdotie Twitter account is managed by the eGovernment Policy Unit of the Department of Public Expenditure and Reform. Tweets will cover developments in eGovernment and related services. Retweets may be used to highlight relevant appropriate announcements, particularly those by other Government bodies. Normally our Twitter account will be updated and monitored during office hours, Monday to Friday.
We welcome and will read all @ messages. However in general, due to resource constraints, we will not be in a position to reply to all messages.
@govdotie will not be obliged to follow any of our followers. If we do follow a Twitter account, it does not imply endorsement of any kind.
Sending a message via Twitter will not be considered as contacting the Department for official purposes and we will not be obliged to monitor or respond to requests for information through the Twitter channel. Instead, please see our contact details on http://www.gov.ie/contact-us/ for eGovernment matters or http://per.gov.ie/ for general Department matters.
@govdotie is operated by civil servants and as such we cannot participate in matters of party politics.
