We may use some automation such as tools that generate tweets from RSS feeds.
Our followers can expect between 5-10 tweets a week, although this may increase if there are a series of major announcements, for instance.
Our tweets will cover some or all of the following:
- alerts about new content on our national and regional websites (enews, publications, Accolades, Annual Conference. Regional news/events etc.)
- invitations to provide feedback on specific issues which we are consulting on
- re-tweets of information from other workforce development related sources, as appropriate.
If you follow @skillsforcare we will not automatically follow you back. This is to discourage the use of direct messaging, avoid resource wasting spam handling and so that you can easily identify other key Twitter users that we think are relevant and who we follow. However, being followed by Skills for Care does not imply endorsement of any kind.
