The institutional Twitter account @BurundiGov was created in August 2010 after Pierre Nkurunziza was re-elected as president. It suspended posting tweets between March 2011 and January 2012. The account is run by the government administration which simply tweets press releases and official communiqués published on its website, including the title in capital letters. The account clearly does not interact with its followers, nor uses any @replies, @mentions or hashtags. The government in Bujumbura mutually follows its northern neighbor, the government of Rwanda @rwandagov.
