There is a lack of engagement with the community. Would you say
community, association and group are the same? The little experience
I've had pushes me to believe the ministry would not consider an
individual's idea/comment/suggestion if he has no affiliation.

Apart from _at_PresidentMtius I know no other state presence on Twitter. I
do not know of any officer from the Ministry of TCI to be active on
Twitter. I know of one board member of the ICT Authority who used to
parrot on Facebook but since a while he too has gone radio silent.
