#AskQNLZ An Experiment in Social Media Engagament

QE Carrier Portsmouth

This afternoon the Royal Navy hosted a ‘live Twitter chat’ with Captain Simon Petitt from HMS Queen Elizabeth.

Questions raised from the trivial to the very interesting including this gem from yours truly;

Am on holiday, don’t expect anything too serious!

Social media engagement is an important strand of the MoD’s engagement strategy and I thought this was done really well.

Many of the questions were not answered within the hour and of course, there were questions that were difficult or impossible to answer within the bounds of policy compliance and security, but on the whole, they were answered with humour and openness. The hash tag search page took a while to update which meant that it looked like most of the questions were not answered within the hour but tracking the individual questions revealed a range of answers.

  1. So far I’ve found their twitter account to be pretty good, with some honest and personable answers, especially in the face of very ignorant questions at times.

  2. The LCVP answer is quite surprising (“Not at the moment but I have no doubts that we will look at this very soon – we have the space.”). What’s supposed to dangle from those whopping sponsons if not a few LCVP :-(

  3. I don’t know about the fuel tanks but the hangar is the size of 12 Olympic swimming pools. I believe the deck is the length of 40 London buses but whether we will ever see that many deployed….

  4. He failed to answer fully some questions any took too long between answers.

    Other than that, it worked.

  5. Twelve London buses will be the usual peacetime deployment, with the possibility to surge in emergencies, in practice probably a few New York cabs and San Francisco tram cars.
