Social media records are public records

National Archives Australia (NAA) provides clear guidance on this: “Social media records held in their native applications on third-party sites may not be legally regarded as a Commonwealth record. Despite being created by an Australian Government agency, the information may not be able to be retained or accessed over the long term.”
