SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY

This policy sets out how we use Social Media, and will tell you what you can expect from us if you follow Dotspot or Dotti Colvin’s official accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest.

We do not use any automation to post content, such as tools that generate tweets from RSS feeds. If you follow us, you can generally expect no more than 1 tweets, posts or pins a day at this time, usually less, covering the following:

  • alerts about new content relating to Dotspot on digital channels (news, publications, opening social media channels, publicity campaigns, etc)
  • alerts about new content relating to arts (primarily illustration) or charitable concerns supported by Dotspot
  • occasional live coverage of events

 

Following

We follow organisations and public individuals which share or represent Dotspot’s interests as an illustrator and in art, literature and education. They include (but are not exclusively limited to) other artists, authors and publishers with whom Doti Colvin  has worked and charitable organisations which she supports. We do not automatically follow back new followers. Due to resources, we infrequently review our follower list. Being followed back does not imply endorsement of any kind.

Availability

We will update and monitor our social media accounts during office hours, Monday to Friday. Social media platforms may occasionally be unavailable and we accept no responsibility for lack of service due to third party downtime.

@Replies, Direct Messages, Comments

We welcome feedback from all our followers and endeavour to join the conversation where possible. However, sometimes we are not able to reply individually to all the messages we receive. We do read all posts, comments, @replies and Direct Messages. We do not engage on issues of party politics or answer questions which may infringe Dotti Colvin’s personal privacy. Social media users should be aware that Dotti Colvin replies to messages in person.
