President #PierreNkurunziza and #Burundi are the most used hashtags on the Twitter account of Burundi’s presidency. The account which was established on 3 February 2012 chronicles the activities of President Pierre Nkurunziza in French. The administration posts on average one tweet every two days mainly promoting the activities of the president including pictures of his bilateral meetings. The account tweets mainly from an iPad and an iPhone but rarely @replies to other Twitter users. The presidency in Bujumbura mutually follows its northern neighbor, the government of Rwanda @RwandaGov and the @PresidenceMali.
