BAAL is not an accreditation body for any courses or organisations and neither its name, nor its acronym, nor its logo can be used in the publicity material of any other organisation without prior permission of the Executive Committee.

New BAAL Twitter Handle
1) After some careful thought and deliberation, we've updated BAAL's Twitter handle from @BAALmedia to @__BAAL (two underscores at the start), primarily to reflect the fact that our tweets are not just aimed at media audiences, but also to make our username as short as we can in keeping with the constraints of the platform. (We wanted just @BAAL, but as you can probably imagine, this was taken years ago.)
2) Do mention @__BAAL when tweeting about BAAL-
3) In the event that the change has catastrophic unintended consequences, we've retained the old @BAALmedia handle. I intend to monitor it for a few months so that I can steer anyone who uses the old handle back to the new one. (This is just a heads up in case anyone notices and wonders if that account is fraudulent. It's not.)
