First tweet

Government of Philippines PCOO

The team managing the official account of the Presidential Communications Operations Office does not seem to have a clear Twitter strategy yet. The account, which made its debut on the microblogging platform on 30 July 2010 with a link to the official website, is linked to the PCOO Facebook page and most tweets contain information about President Aquino’s agenda and links to press briefings. Though, activity on Twitter is very rare and includes long periods of silence. The @GovPH_PCOO account does not retweet, @mention or @reply and rarely uses hashtags.

Foreign Ministry of Philippines DFA Spokesperson

The Philippines Department of Foreign Affairs is on Twitter through its spokesperson who sent his first tweet on 20 September 2012. @DFAspokesperson has been sending one tweet a day but rarely @mentions or @replies to other Twitter users. The handle is primarily used to distribute press briefings linking back to the official government website as well as links to their Facebook page. The most retweeted tweet was sent after the Boston bombings on 16 April 2013. The spokesperson doesn’t follow any peers, only following the Presidential Communications Operations Office and President @NoyNoyAquino.
