Twitter and Facebook may occasionally be unavailable and we accept no responsibility for lack of service due to downtime.

Following on Twitter

If you follow @TimHoldingMP he will not automatically follow you back. This is to discourage the use of direct messaging, avoid resource wasting spam handling and so that you can easily identify other key Twitter users that we think are relevant to Tim and to government in who he follows. However, being followed by @TimHoldingMP does not imply endorsement of any kind by Tim Holding or Victorian Labor.

Facebook Supporters

Tim’s Facebook supporter page is public and anyone may become a supporter. However, this does not imply endorsement of any kind by Tim Holding or Victorian Labor.

Comment Moderation

Tim welcomes the use of his social media channels as a place for the public to ask questions and engage in discussion. However, we expect all contributors to be respectful. Comments which include inappropriate language or personal abuse will be removed.

We retain the right to determine which comments violate our comments policy at our discretion. We also reserve the right to remove violations.


Tim welcomes feedback and ideas from all his followers and supporters, and endeavours to join the conversation where possible. However, Tim is not able to reply individually to all the messages he receives via his social media accounts.

Tim’s office reads all @replies and Direct Messages on Twitter and all comments on Facebook and ensures that any emerging themes or helpful suggestions are passed to the relevant people.
