“Merci” – a one word ‘Thank You’ tweet is the most re-tweeted tweet by Senegal’s President Macky Sall, which his team sent on 25 March 2012, the day of the run-off elections against incumbent Abdoulaye Wade. Although the account is written in the first person President Macky Sall does not tweet himself. Since January 2012 the Twitter feed is directly linked to his Facebook page, which has three times as many fans as his Twitter account has followers, generating tweets whenever a new photo is uploaded or a news item is posted. President @macky_sall mutually follows three other African leaders, namely Guinea’s @sekhoutoureya, Niger’s @mahamadouissouf and @PresidenceMali.
