National Local Government Twitter day

Publish date:

On 1 August, councils across the country will join forces on social media to promote local government through National Local Government Twitter Day.

The Twitter Day aims to raise positive awareness of the value of local government by showcasing the diverse range of services undertaken by councils for the benefit of their communities.

It doesn’t require any additional resources – other than simply adding the hashtag #YourRatesAtWork to council tweets throughout the 24 hours.

In 2016, National Twitter Day generated 2,260 tweets using the #YourRatesAtWork hashtag, with more than 530 separate twitter users participating nationwide.

Council communications teams have been provided with resources to assist your participation in this event. These resources are available in the Comms Hub of our members-only website.
