Togolese President Faure Essozimna Gnassingbé set up a Twitter account on 27 August 2012. The account is quite active and extremely conversational.

President of Togo Faure Gnassingbe

The President of Togo is not a very active Twitter user and has only sent eleven tweets since the beginning of 2014. His Twitter activity has steadily declined in 2013. However he is very conversational and more than two thirds of his tweets are @replies to other Twitter users. To a question of who is tweeting he replied in March 2013: “Me personally or my team”, signed with his initials #FEG. His team tweets exclusively in French and often @mentions other Twitter users. The president shares quite a few ‘handshake pictures’ with other foreign leaders but does not follow them on Twitter, only following seven other accounts, namely Togo’s representations abroad, the US embassy in Lomé and football star Emmanuel Adebayor.
