Twitter

Twitter is a web-based group messaging service.

Mosman Council has an account on Twitter – @mosmancouncil – and we invite you to follow us.

Who is @mosmancouncil?

@mosmancouncil is produced by Mosman Council’s web team, based in the Library.

Why are you using Twitter?

Our aim is to inform constituents of what’s happening in Mosman.

  • Our Twitter channel supplements the information we publish on our website.
  • We can remind you of important events and alert you to late-breaking news.
  • We can link to interesting and useful information about Mosman published by other people.
  • We can better communicate with those using mobile devices.

But we’re also aware of the changing nature of communication on the internet and our use of this channel will be influenced by your participation and response to it.

Will you respond to my replies or direct messages?

Yes, we will reply as quickly as possible, but please note that we monitor the channel during business hours only.

You should contact Mosman Council by email or in writing if you have:

  • a formal request, comment or enquiry;
  • a complaint against Council, Council staff or Councillors; or
  • a response to an item for Community Consultation.

Formal correspondence will be answered promptly and in accordance with our Guarantee of Service (PDF 32KB). ‘Correspondence’ means communications written, faxed or emailed that includes your proper name and address. Direct messages from Twitter are not considered as correspondence.

In some instances it will be more appropriate to contact your Councillor.

Stop following me!

If @mosmancouncil is following you and you’d rather we didn’t, please let us know and we’ll stop, or feel free to block us.

Be aware that Twitter is a public space on the internet and all interaction is publicly viewable and searchable over time.

If you want to keep your Twitter channel private, you can protect your updates.
