The Maldives have not yet made use of Twitter as an effective tool of communication. The personal Twitter account of the president is dormant but his administration and the foreign ministry are active on Twitter.

Tweets from Maldives leaders

President of Maldives Abdulla Yameen

The Twitter account for @PresYameen was created on 10 October 2013, a month before he became president of the Maldives. The account tweeted only 12 times over the period of three days and fell silent the day after his inauguration on 19 November 2013. The tweets chronicle his first steps in government including a courtesy call of the US ambassador and his cabinet appointments. President Abdulla Yameen does not follow any world leaders.
