The @transcotland Twitter account provides information about the work we do in conjunction with our website and other forms of social media.
We will not automatically follow back everyone who follows @transcotland. 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 Transport Scotland does not imply endorsement of any kind.
We will do our best to reply to direct messages or those directed towards @transcotland except where these are marketing queries or of a frivolous nature. Responses may not be immediate as we are a large organisation and it can sometimes take time to ensure that the best possible answer is obtained. For formal enquiries users are advised to contact us by email, post or telephone.
The @transcotland Twitter account will be updated when:
- a news article is published on our website
- forthcoming events/consultations are announced
- a major project bill is made law or announced
- a new vacancy appears on our website
- a video is uploaded to our YouTube channel
- news or an event related to the agency's work becomes known
We may also "retweet" from other sources or on other subjects when these are deemed to be of interest to our stakeholders, for example traffic updates from @trafficscotland or ministerial news from @scotgovweb.
The @transcotland Twitter account and all "tweets" are the property of Transport Scotland and not of any individual within the agency, unless explicitly stated otherwise.
