The Afghan President’s first tweet is a TwitPic of Hamid Karzai meeting with Barack Obama. The Afghan president frequently uses Twitpic to document his meetings with foreign leaders. The Twitter account is linked to the presidential Facebook page and most tweets contain links to photos published on Facebook or videos on YouTube, which often results in double postings in the Twitter stream. The account tweets in Pashto and English. The most re-tweeted tweet is the announcement that "Bagram Prison (will) Be Fully Transferred to Afghan Government” Hamid Karzai once tweeted himself: “I'd like to leave office where I have guaranteed the right of the Afghan people as an independent sovereign democratic country: KARZAI”.
