President of Nigeria Goodluck Jonathan

The @JGoodluckTweets Twitter account was started in July 2010, just days after opening a Facebook page designed to interact more with Nigerians. On 15 September of that same year he announced on his Facebook page that he had finally decided to run for the presidency, becoming the first sitting president to declare his re-election bid via social media. On Twitter he wrote: “The time for transformation is here. I commit to steering the country in the direction of sustainable change and development.” His tweets communicate his key beliefs that are against violence, to bring justice, and encourage patriotism. He emphasizes his vision for the nation that includes initiatives to create more jobs, tackle youth issues, education and overall national development. Engagement on his account is limited with no @replies and @mentions. The account went quiet on 10 May 2011 after the elections and has only briefly tweeted during the World Economic Forum in Davos on 22 January 2014.
