The Maldives have not yet made use of Twitter as an effective tool of communication. The Twitter accounts of the president and the foreign ministry are dormant. The only active account is @Presidencymv.

President of Maldives Abdulla Yameen

The Twitter account for @PresYameen was created in 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.

@Presidencymv, the official Twitter account of the president's office, was set up in January 2009. However, the account has been dormant for more than a year between 27 January 2013 and 13 March 2014. Since then it tweets on average every five days. Without any retweets or @replies and only few @mentions it is not very conversational. The @Hilaaleege account, named after the residence of the president joined Twitter in late December 2009 and was used by former President Waheed. The account is dormant since July2013. None of the accounts have any mutual connections.

The account has only sent 236 tweets since its creation at the end of August 2012. @ForeignMV is not following any other foreign leader and Foreign Minister @DunyaMaumoon has not activated her Twitter profile yet.
