From: FOIA

Mr. Delaware,

Attached above are your 3 emails sent to the TSA FOIA office that included FOIA requests for information regarding the TSA's use of Twitter and Instagram. First, 2 of the emails ask for the same information about Twitter. Is there a difference between these requests? Finally, would you be opposed to opening these requests under the same FOIA request number?

Once we receive your response we will continue processing your requests.

Thank you for your time. Have a great day!
