HMRC has begun trialling the use of Twitter, operating under the username @hmrcgovuk
Dave Hartnett, HM Revenue & Customs Permanent Secretary for Tax, said that the social media site was an excellent way for followers to find out quickly and easily what was going on at HMRC.
HMRC tweets posted on Twitter will include news, publications, web content, consultations, speeches and publicity campaigns concerning HMRC and tax matters.
Mr Hartnett stressed: “It is important to remember that we will never discuss individual taxpayer’s affairs using Twitter.”
