You're establishing agency twitter accounts based on the names of specific people? What happens if Lisa F quits or has different job responsibilities?

I'm not so much criticizing as I am trying to help you out in trying to avoid what will surely be some kind of headache will you have a change in personnel.

As an old Fogey, I like to use just E-mail. I do not use Twitter, Facebook or other new contrivances.
Thanks anyway.

LOL Is there really a need for that many accounts?

This way they can react even more quickly to reports of TSA misconduct. As soon as a report surfaces, they can immediately let everyone know that the report is false and the TSA acted properly.

On slow news days, daily reminders to "Remember 9/11 as you remove your shoes and step in the scanner!" "Do you want to fly today?" or "The TSA is always right!" may dissuade people from reporting problems, there by saving TSA resources. Much more efficient than waiting for Bob to choose the right boilerplate phrases for a blog post, or making managers spend time deciding whether to deny, spin away, or ignore the latest fiasco.

How about just answering some of the many questions that have been asked right here on the TSA Blog, you know, like your suppose to be doing?

Using social media does NOT mean your a socially acceptable organization.

Why does TSA need such a large and expensive PR arm?

TSA is suppose to be about transportation security. I see no reason why the public should be paying hard earned tax dollars for such matters.

TSA is abusing the public, not only in abusive airport screenings but now wasting tax dollars on matters not related to transportation security

You're using these Twitter accts to spam. You're just reTweeting each other's posts. Nothing new or local. Just more spam at taxpayer's expense.

Knock it off.

In my opinion, the measures applied by the agency violate privacy and is unethical. Apart from the fact that these solutions are very expensive. I don’t know if our country is no funding. We have a crisis, gold more expensive srebrne monety and they do not spend money fot no effective technical innovations.
