WA government social media records are public records

“The State Records Act 2000 defines a record as ‘information however recorded’, therefore any business-related content created by a government organisation using social media is subject to the same recordkeeping requirements as information created by other means.”

A social media archive is not just best practice. It’s also a legal requirement.
