Sir Jizza - less social media more responding to FOI requests please
And by responding,I mean actually giving the data asked for, not lying through your teeth to give a reason why it cannot be given
Cheer up, Britain. Your government may not be able to control either its borders or its rivers, and it may have sent its farmers back to using pen and paper and telephone hotlines. But there's one way it still leads the world, according to the Head of the British Civil Service. The Whitehall supremo says the UK is the best in …
You'll be expecting him to be competent next, and that's a harsh challenge for any civil servant. But to be fair to the bloke, he's well down the pecking order of the government gravy train:
What a bunch of over-paid, talent-free tossers on that document.
....a community of Twitter followers that equates to roughly 4% of the domestic population.
Which, as a way of keeping in touch with the population is of about the same use as a packet of spongecloths is in addressing the York flooding. It would be quite interesting to know if any of those followers are not party activists or journalists......
 i.e. All of it.
Take the phrase "never met a revenue stream it didn't like" and apply it to advertising. Social media is essentially free advertising with excellent metrics to go with. No wonder governments like it as it helps them sell their wares. From the data given, though, I think I will be moving to... let's see... Hungary.
I should mention that I loathe most social media and avoid it accordingly, but I wondered about the use of "hashtag #12DaysofCSMas" in the article. Isn't that a bit redundant?
Heywood sounds like the very definition of a government tech obsessed "cyber twat" who's goes to bed each night crying into his Mark Zuckerberg pillow case and Steve Jobs duvet cover, 'cos he wasn't part of the Silicon Valley elite 30 years ago, yet still struggles to sync his music collection from his iPad with iTunes!
Frankly amfm, I imagine you. Anonymous Coward
Methinks that thought in deed, indeed be a worthy twit of a tweet for a twat, AC. Bravo, Sir/Madam.
However, the truth of the matter being exercised in the thread here on El Reg Andrew Orlowski is the virtual intelligence of the head of the UK Civil Service is being publicly tested for fitness in future Greater IntelAIgent Games purpose.
A deathly hush and non reply telling one and all all that be needed to move on to greener fields. Such be the new way of working things nowadays. Time and tides/space and cyber movements wait for nothing and no one really.

That British bureaucrats spending all their time on Facebook and Twitter at work is a good thing?
Funny, how long ago was it that they were crying that employees doing the same at businesses was costing the country billions?
It seems that cognitive dissonance is running rampant through the Government.
