We recently read @yoyoel’s blog post, “Automation and the use of multiple accounts,” and have an important follow-up question.
“As a sole exception to this rule, applications that broadcast or share weather, emergency, or other public service announcements of broad community interest (for example, earthquake or tsunami alerts) are permitted to post this content across multiple accounts who have authorized an app.”
We are quite certain that our Twitter app, used by public transportation agencies, meets the criterion for this exception. But, do we need to proactively reach out to Twitter to receive an exemption? If so, how do we go about doing that?
We need to ensure that there is no service disruption of our Twitter- and Facebook-based public alerting system. How do we take active steps to find out if Twitter approves our request for the public service announcement exception?
With many thanks,
