“The Government of Botswana is now on Facebook and Twitter for better and efficient communication with the Nation, your thoughts.” That was the first tweet sent on 20 September 2011; but only 2 months, 19 tweets, and 1,084 followers later the government in Gabarone stopped tweeting. The reason why they haven’t tweeted since November 2011 isn’t made clear and the Tweetdeck links in their tweets are also expired. So what in the beginning looked like a really good social media intention turns out to be a silent affair. The most re-tweeted tweet was the “SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT: HEATWAVE ACROSS THE COUNTRY” by the Department of Meteorological Services.
