Picture of Donald Trump Speaking to Journalists and looking sad

The Register’s Home Office exclusive picked up by UK nationals

The Register journalist Kat Hall uncovered a leaked memo asking Home Office staff to refrain from tweeting about Donald Trump using their personal twitter accounts.

The Register, Situation Publishing’s technology news outlet, once again broke an exclusive that was picked up by national news publications across the UK. The email, addressed to all staff and contractors, reminded them their guidelines state that they should avoid commenting on politically controversial topics and noted that a couple of known employee twitter accounts were ‘not compliant’ with the guidelines.

In under a week, top tier national news outlets followed suit, with the BBC, The Telegraph, The Times and The Daily Express all publishing articles based on The Register’s exclusive.
