As you noted, @greenversations is simply an RSS-fed account. I know real engagement is the gold standard, but it seems plenty of people are happy enough with this to follow.

@usepagov is also primarily RSS-driven, but I’ve started monitoring it and answering questions through manual tweets on the rare occasions we get any.

Thanks for reading and commenting!

Great to see our government embracing social media. Twitter is an amazing way to connect with people.

I did notice from your stream of tweets that they are basically all pointers to articles. Not exactly ‘engagement’. It’s a great first step. Are there policies for how agencies can (or cannot) respond to users on non-government sites?

I write a blog on Twitter marketing and plan to write an article specifically on how government agencies are using Twitter. We’ve already written extensively about small businesses, corporations and non-profits. We’ll definitely include your Twitter info.

It’s great that the epa gets its environmental message out there but other departments of the government could also benefit in it’s use.

social media is a fantastic way to reach leverage many to many conversations and you never know when a message will take off virally and suddenly impact a hugely wider audience than even intended. this is because of the interconnected nature of so many concerns. for instance stewardship of the environment is related tangentially but interconnected directly with health food and preventative medicine due to the correlation of health and environment and food. You never know when a message/post you release will virally take off. Every one that does take off cumulatively expands the reach of subsequent messages. thanks for this topic Anna Wilde
