Re employee personal accounts and politics[edit]

(Pinging @AJohnson (WMF): because her job title looks like it's most relevant to this, and the person who originally wrote the relevant policy no longer works for the WMF. If this area is actually someone else's responsibility, could you please inform me of who it is, or who I should ask to find out? Thanks.)

The page says, regarding WMF employees' personal social media accounts, that "Many arguments about politics and other divisive topics are flaring up on social media lately. If you post political opinions on social media, never mention the Foundation or Wikimedia projects." Is this rule in effect? I know of at least one very prominent WMF employee who regularly both posts particularly divisive political posts and posts about the WMF very frequently, from their personal Twitter account. Would it be appropriate to mention this to the employee(s) in question, or someone specific at the WMF? Or am I misunderstanding the policy, or is it no longer in effect, or something? --Yair rand (talk) 06:50, 15 August 2018 (UTC)
