South Sudan

The Republic of South Sudan joined Twitter for its external communications in July 2011, exactly a week before being admitted to the United Nations as the 193rd member country.

Government of South Sudan Gov of South Sudan

The official account of the Government for South Sudan broadcasts the activities of President Kiir, consistently referred to as “H.E. Kiir” and chronicles the new country’s nation building. The account was set up on 8 July 2011, just two days before gaining independence: “Dear Friends, on this great day the Government of Southern Sudan @RepSouthSudan is delighted to welcome you to our official Twitter Account”. The @UN, @Israel, the @_AfricanUnion and the @WorldBank are among the most mentioned accounts by @RepSouthSudan. The account is well connected with other world leaders, unilaterally following 40 and mutually connected with 11 other foreign ministers and governments.
