Bureau now tweeting in all states and territories
The Bureau of Meteorology is now active on Twitter in all states and territories, with staff tweeting daily to enhance the community’s awareness of forecast information, particularly during severe weather events.
Bureau meteorologists around the country are now trained and ready to tweet, with these tweets pointing back to the most up-to-date, comprehensive and official source of information – the Bureau’s website.
