Social media policy

Our social media accounts are managed by the Data Science Campus communications team at the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

Engagement on social media

We may follow, like, retweet and share tweets on our account, however this does not imply endorsement by the Data Science Campus or the ONS.


We occasionally use hashtags so that our tweets are picked up by people discussing a particular topic. Use of these hashtags does not mean that the Campus or the ONS endorse any views or description of events implied by the hashtags.


We update and monitor our accounts during UK office hours, Monday to Friday. They may occasionally be unavailable and we are not responsible for lack of service due to downtime.

Contacting us

We work closely with the ONS (@ONS) communications, social media and design teams to create content that is accessible and consistent with the ONS style guide and branding guidelines. We welcome feedback and ideas, but we do not reply individually to all the messages we receive on our website and social media channels.

While we actively monitor mentions, comments and conversations, please email us at if you would like to:

  • ask about our work
  • ask for information on the content we publish
  • raise an issue about the production or publication of our website content or social media posts
