How GrantsLINK is using social media channels
GrantsLINK makes official use of Twitter to inform stakeholders and the Australian community about grants listed in GrantsLINK.
Members of the team managing the GrantsLINK website (the myregion team), and other staff from the Department of Regional Australia, Local Government , Arts and Sport may also use social media for personal and professional reasons, however are not officially representing the Department or GrantsLINK when doing so.
Use of social media by Australian public servants is governed within the APS Values and APS Code of Conduct through Circular 2012/1: Revisions to the Commission's guidance on making public comment and participating online. This Circular has been integrated into the APS Values and Code of Conduct in practice.
Twitter is a web-based messaging service used to distribute news and to share and discuss information in the form of short messages called ‘tweets’.
You do not need to register for Twitter to view these tweets. Where a Twitter account is public its tweets can be viewed on the account holder’s profile page.
GrantsLINK uses Twitter to;
- distribute news, announcements, event notices and updates relevant to Australian grants, about the GrantsLINK site and on behalf of the Department of Regional Australia, Local Government, Arts and Sport,
- highlight new grants added to the GrantsLINK website,
- highlight grants listed in GrantsLINK where their application period is soon to close.
GrantsLINK currently operates one Twitter account:
This account is managed by the myregion team at the Department of Regional Australia, Local Government, Arts and Sport with some support from other business areas.
Will you respond to my tweets?
The GrantsLINK account is focused on distributing information about grants, rather than on two-way engagement.
However the account is monitored (as below) and, where appropriate, tweets directed to the account may receive responses.
To contact us please use the GrantsLINK contact form.
When is the GrantsLINK Twitter account monitored?
The myregion team periodically monitors Twitter accounts during business hours (Australian Eastern Time). They may be intermittently monitored outside business hours subject to staff availability.
Will GrantsLINK follow me on Twitter?
The myregion team may choose to follow organisations and individuals involved with, or actively discussing, grants in Australia.
Individuals and organisations choosing to follow the GrantsLINK Twitter account may be followed in return.
You may request that GrantsLINK stop following you by tweeting a request to @grantsLINKgovau, using the GrantsLINK contact form or by blocking the account using the block function in Twitter.
You are reminded that Twitter is a public space on the internet and most interactions are publicly viewable and searchable over time. For more information visit http://help.twitter.com.
