Social media fuelled uprisings in Tunisia, Egypt and Libya so it is not surprising to see the Libyan leadership setting up Twitter accounts.

Government of Libya الحكومة المؤقتة

Libya’s interim government is on Twitter since 1 April 2013 and tweets on average 2.5 times per day. The government tweets exclusively in Arabic but includes many pictures of its meetings. The account is not followed by any other world leader and does not follow anyone. The previous governmental account @LyGovernment is dormant since 20 January 2013 and only tweeted once in 2014.
