Dear HM Revenue and Customs,

Has HMRC ever asked Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, LinkedIn or any other popular Social Media platforms to remove posts or block accounts from third parties, either via the providers built-in tools or other channels?
If so, please provide high level details.

Yours faithfully,

Dear F. Thompson,

Freedom of Information Act 2000 Acknowledgement

Thank you for your communication of 23rd April which has been passed to
HMRC's Freedom of Information Team.

We have allocated the above reference which you should quote if you need
to contact us.

The Team will arrange for a reply to be sent to you which will either
comply with HMRC's obligations under Freedom of Information Act or, if we
think it's an enquiry that we don't need to address under the terms of the
Act, let you know why. If it is the latter we will, if possible, pass it
on to a more appropriate part of the Department for answer.

Yours sincerely

HMRC Freedom of Information Act Team
