Request

Is there an official policy for the use of organisational Facebook or Twitter accounts (ie how to post, what to use it for and when to delete or preserve records)?

If there is a policy (or policies) please may I be provided with them?

Response

I can confirm that we do not have a specific policy for organisational use of social media. However, I am aware of my duty to provide advice and assistance and therefore I can tell you that we refer to the following government social media guidance for civil servants when considering how we use social media.
