Prime Minister of Iraq Nouri K. Al-Maliki

On 2 January 2012, Nouri K. Al-Maliki, Prime Minister of the Republic of Iraq, started using Twitter as a tool to spread the word about his political activities. The account only tweets intermittently, with only 44 tweets and just over 3,000 followers, the account still doesn’t have much traction and hardly any engagement. Al-Maliki has used Twitter as a platform to broadcast messages encouraging people to show commitment towards the constitution of Iraq, as well as to highlight the power enjoyed by the council of ministers and its vital role in stabilizing the country. The account tweets in Arabic only and tweets are usually accompanied with the hashtag #نوري_المالكي which is his name in Arabic.

Foreign Minister of Iraq hoshyar zebari

Foreign Minister of Iraq Hoshyar Zebari started his Twitter account on 29 December 2011 but the account has been dormant since 26 October 2013. @HoshyarZebari tweets in English and the tweets are written in a personal tone which suggest he might be tweeting himself. The Twitter stream chronicles his visits to other countries and meetings with other foreign ministers and addresses Iraq’s regional and global affairs. Hoshyar Zebari has been quite conversational replying in 29% of his tweets, mainly thanking followers when setting up his account in 2012. @HoshyarZebari mutually follows Bahrain’s Foreign Minister @KhalidAlKhalifa, and Jordan’s @NasserJudeh, and @WilliamjHague.
