How Many Social Media Accounts Does the MOD Maintain?

The UK’s Ministry of Defence (MOD) (including the British Army,  Royal Air Force, and Royal Navy) operate a variety of social media accounts:

As of September 2018, there were a total of 720 registered social media accounts:

  • Facebook: 472.
  • Twitter: 240.
  • YouTube: 8.

It is important to note that the above are in constant flux, meaning the closure of old, redundant accounts and the opening of new organisation accounts will change the number.
