The division Twitter account is managed by Communication Services. We may occasionally use some automation (such as tools that generate tweets from RSS feeds), but intend this will not dominate the messages posted.
If you follow us, you can expect approximately three-five tweets a week covering some or all of the following:
- Alerts about new division content (events, news, publications, videos, speeches, publicity campaigns, etc)
- Invitations to provide feedback
- Information about schools and projects
- Occasional live coverage of events
- Up-to-the-minute coverage during school bus cancellations due to inclement weather, or in the event of a crisis
We encourage individuals and organizations to follow the @EIPS Twitter account to receive our latest updates, We will follow division and stakeholder-related individuals and organizations including school, teacher and community accounts, as well as other accounts as relevant on an individual basis. Being followed by us does not imply endorsement of any kind.
We will update and monitor our Twitter account during regular office hours, 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday, and occasionally after hours if we are live tweeting an event. Twitter service may occasionally be unavailable and EIPS accepts no responsibility for lack of service due to Twitter downtime.
@Replies and Direct Messages
We welcome feedback and ideas from followers, and will try to join the conversation when possible.
While we may not be able to reply individually to all messages received on Twitter, we read all @replies and Direct Messages and will ensure any emerging themes or helpful suggestions are passed along to the relevant people in the division. In the event of a major emerging or live breaking issue, we will respond to as many @replies and DMs as possible but we may not be able to personally get to all tweets directed our way. In this case, we will address major issues and themes to the wider audience.
The usual ways of contacting us for official correspondence are detailed in the contact us section of our website.
