Africa is home to some of the most conversational leaders on Twitter. The tweets of Rwanda’s President @PaulKagame and Rwanda’s Foreign Minister @LMushikiwabo are almost exclusively @replies to their followers. Eighty percent of African leaders are on Twitter but they are currently not that well connected, either among themselves or with other world leaders. The Foreign Ministry of Somalia @mofasomalia has the most mutual Twitter connections. Rwanda’s Paul Kagame and Kenya’s President Uhuru Kenyatta and are Africa’s most followed leaders with more than 700,000 followers each. The young republic of South Sudan and the new leadership in Somalia have been using Twitter to make their voices heard on the international scene.
