You shouldn't have twitter on all the time. I'd check it 5 minutes a day, maybe see if there's something to interact with, and ignore it the rest of the time. A few periodic checks/posts are all you need to do some networking and meet people.
Of course, I'd say that interacting with people here is the same thing.
I open it and use for any amount of time and it is considered an ethics violation in that Twitter is not allowed and if used it is considered private use of a state resource to support social media. If I use my own phone it is again a violation due to the use of state time on a forbidden activity. It is so harsh that I have to get permission to access LinkedIn to check peoples references and other online information.
This is why I do read and comment at this site. Since it can be presented as a learning resource I can and many others in government do participate here.
