The Space Policy Unit is the Australian Government’s central point of coordination for all civil space activities. We invite you to follow us on Twitter @SpaceAustralia.
Why are we using Twitter?
Our aim is to engage with people interested in Australian civil space activities and those with views on how awareness can be encouraged in Australia and internationally.
Our Twitter channel will update you on news and events happening in the ‘Space’ arena. It will help us let you know about the work of the Space Policy Unit and the associated opportunities for input and consultation.
It will also provide links to new updates on our website www.space.gov.au.
Will the Unit respond to replies or direct messages?
We may not respond to individual messages. We may reply to general themes that appear within the Twitter feed. The Twitter feed will only be monitored during business hours and we consider a Twitter conversation to be similar to that of a telephone conversation, and not considered as correspondence (letters, faxes, emails, submission et cetera). If you have an enquiry that you wish to be answered directly please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please be aware that Twitter is a public space on the internet. Twitter interactions are publically viewable and searchable.
