Twitter is a digital real-time application for disseminating short messages in a telegram-like style. It is used as a communication platform of social networks. The short text messages (Tweets) can have a maximum of 140 characters.

The Federal Statistical Office (Destatis) operates an English-language Twitter account @destatis_news through which you can receive English-language press releases and information from our English-language website.

We explicitly point out that using the Destatis Twitter account and the protection of data you enter there are subject to the Twitter terms of use. The terms of use of Twitter differ from those of our own website ( – Data protection notes), where no personal user behaviour is stored and your data are treated with maximum confidentiality in accordance with the Federal Data Protection Act.
