Treasury on social media
The Treasury uses social media to share information about the department and its work. You can find us on these social media channels: Treasury Twitter Treasury LinkedIn Treasury Facebook Social media channels are updated and monitored during standard business hours: 8:30am – 5:30pm from Monday to Friday (AEST/AEDT), excluding public holidays. Accounts may be monitored outside of business hours, subject to staff availability. Treasury may choose to republish (e.g. 'retweet', 'share' or reference) social media content (e.g. tweets, events, posts) that contains information or links to material related to the Treasury portfolio. We may also 'follow' or 'like' organisations or individuals involved with, or actively discussing relevant policy issues. These practices do not constitute endorsement by the Treasury. Treasury publishes a Social Media Policy for its staff to guide their use of social media, in both an official and non-official capacity. The APS Values and Code of Conduct govern the use of social media by public servants. Consistent with these policies, our employees are expected to maintain a high standard of conduct and behaviour online.
We welcome questions and commentary on our social media pages, but we expect users to be relevant and respectful. When engaging online, we expect that you:
- protect your personal privacy and that of others by not including personal information of either yourself or of others in your posts (for example, names, email addresses, private addresses or phone numbers)
- represent your own views and not impersonate or falsely represent any other person;
- do not post material that infringes the intellectual property rights of others
- do not be abusive, harass or threaten others; do not make defamatory or libellous comments
- do not use insulting, provocative or hateful language; do not use obscene or offensive language
- do not promote commercial interests in your posts; do not post overtly party political comments
- do not make unproven or unsupported accusations against individuals or organisations
- do not conduct any illegal activity or solicit the performance of any illegal activity
