Paul Biya, the president of Cameroon since 1982, has two Twitter accounts. The @PaulBiya account was only active for a fortnight in the run-up to elections in October 2011 and his campaign account @PR_Paul_Biya, which is still active today.

President of Cameroon President Paul Biya

President Paul Biya’s campaign account was particularly active during the elections in October 2011 in which he won a sixth term in office which led him to tweet: “Slowly but surely, we are acquiring that famous culture of democracy, which is our objective.” His Twitter stream is a mix of the president's official matters and announcements in French and sometimes in English including pictures of his meetings. The account generally tweets which heads of state and ambassadors he has welcomed, sending congratulations and condolences to other world leaders and reporting which laws he has signed and which letters he has received.

2e président du Cameroun, j'ai accédé à la présidence le 06 nov 1982 après la démission du Président A. AHIDJO. Depuis, le renouveau du Cameroun est en marche.
