Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send and read short text updates (up to a maximum of 140 characters) via an Internet Web site. The updates are known as Tweets and are displayed on the user's profile page and can be read by anyone who has signed up to view them.
We have developed our own page on Twitter which can be viewed at: www.twitter.com/glasgowcc
The council has developed Twitter guidance [13kb] for staff who may be posting updates to its Twitter feed. This can be viewed here.
GCC encourages constructive comments about the services it provides and we believe that all customers have the right to be heard, understood and respected. We also consider that GCC staff have these same rights.
We retain the right, where we consider comments to be unacceptable, to restrict or change access to our service.
The threat or use of verbal abuse or harassment towards GCC staff on social media Web sites like Twitter is unacceptable behaviour. Incidents may be reported to the police.
