What is Twitter?

Twitter is a website designed to allow people to communicate and stay connected by exchanging quick, frequent, 140 character messages. When you log into Twitter, you simply choose whose messages you want to receive and how you want to receive them.

National Rail Enquiries uses Twitter to send real time updates to the accounts that you follow when there is service disruption. Where there is additional information available that we can’t fit into 140 characters, we will include a link to the relevant page of our website. These updates can be read through your mobile device or on a computer without having to search for it. Keep reading to find out more about how to use Twitter.

Who can I follow?

National Rail Enquiries runs a number of Twitter accounts to get you the information you need.

For up to the minute information about disruption across the National Rail network, follow @nationalrailenq. You can also subscribe to journey specific alerts to be received from our @NRE_Alerts account.

For help using our website or finding information, send a Tweet to @nationalrailenq or any of the individual TOC accounts listed below:
