To Follow or Not to Follow

Hallelujah, @Orders-in-Council is tweeting again.

This twitter stream that monitors updates from the Privy Council Office has been intermittent to say the least. It is really important to know what is coming out of the Privy Council Office.

Given the on again off again nature of this particular twitter stream, should we follow it or not?

My instinct says watch for it, but continue with regular monitoring of the OIC database. What do you think?


  1. That sounds reasonable. Do we know who is doing the tweeting? The person doing it may not understand the need for consistency and completeness.

  2. There is nothing in the profile that says who is tweeting and I have never received a DM response. Probably time to reach out again.

  3. Isn’t there a web site on which all orders in council automatically appear – or maybe it’s a part of the Canada Gazette. It would seem to me a more reliable source of information to have an RSS feed to the relevant part of the Gazette, rather than having to depend on an individual to keep up with this kind of communication among other distracting responsibilities.

    I suppose you have a method of sorting out this kind of message in your Twitter stream from the many other messages from people and institutions you follow.
