How to Add Your Tweets to Our Index

Provide us with the @handle for your Twitter account(s). Your @handle is your agency’s username used within Twitter. When you’re logged into Twitter, you can see your username at https://twitter.com/login?redirect_after_login=/settings/account.

For example, the Twitter username for the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), is @AskTSA.

When you add your Twitter @handle, we’ll automatically index and display your tweets. Select the option, Show tweets from my lists, to index the tweets for all members of your lists.

If you don’t want to display your tweets, simply delete your Twitter handle.
