Implementation Steps

  1. Before an Oklahoma agency may use any social media or social networking site, the agency must have such an internal social media policy developed and approved by the Office of Management and Enterprise Services (OMES). Create the policy and submit it to the OMES Service Desk. Guidance for creating this policy may be found in the State of Oklahoma Social Networking and Social Media Development Methodology. Before an agency may use social networking or social media technologies, OSF must approve the agency policy.

  2. Review the Twitter Terms of Service.

  3. Request a copy of the State of Oklahoma Twitter template. To make the request, contact the OMES Service Desk - by phone at (405) 521-2444; by e-mail at The template is an Adobe Photoshop document (.psd file) containing the layers that will allow an agency to add its name and logo.
