Are you telling me that News Affairs does not maintain any lists of official Twitter accounts that they have access too? That is hard to believe. Where would they keep the passwords (this is not an official FOIA request, I'm explaining my line of thinking). Do they not have a central way of managing twitter accounts (or facebook or other social networks)? Please have them go back and do an additional search because this seems like a very basic request for a office that is called "News Affairs".
