Tweets from Indonesia leaders

President of Indonesia Joko Widodo

Indonesia's President Joko Widodo was fairly active on Twitter during the election campaign in 2014 tweeting exclusively in Bahasa Indonesian. His most retweeted tweet was sent on Election Day, 22 July 2014, indicating that an "arduous task awaits us". Since becoming president the account has gone into abeyance and his last tweet was sent on 22 August 2014. President Joko Widodo is not well connected with other world leaders as the @jokowi_do2 account doesn’t follow any other Twitter user.
