Stay polite, keep it clean and don't fall for trolls: Sinn Fein advice to online activists

Sinn Fein activists have been repeatedly warned not to send offensive or harassing material to people online in guidelines issued by party headquarters.

The party has also warned members and supporters not to discuss internal party matters online and not to repost material from people "who are politically opposed to us".

A "casual, naive or irresponsible approach" to social media like Facebook and Twitter can "cause problems for the party", the guidelines state.
