President of Tunisia محمد المنصف المرزوقي
President Moncef Marzouki is among the top five most followed African leaders but he does not tweet personally. It is interesting to note that the President of Tunisia started his Twitter account in March 2011, two months after the revolution, but before he became President, clearly recognizing the importance of social media. Before the election, his tweets were about his belief in freedom of speech, freedom for Tunisia, transparency and democracy. During the election period in October 2011, Marzouki provided information on how to vote and encouraged his people to be honest and transparent when they voted. Since he became President, he continues to update his followers on his political activities, including summaries of his speeches, allowing his followers to keep a track of his vision for the future.
