There have been no additional costs to date for the creation and maintenance of the Department for Transport corporate Twitter channel:

No additional staff have been recruited and maintenance of the Twitter channel is being managed within the existing communications budget. The task is the responsibility of the departmental communications team as a whole as part of their overall range of duties; no staff are assigned to Twitter work specifically.
