The Saudi government portal (http://www.saudi.gov.sa) joined Twitter in January 2011, but only started actively tweeting in August 2011. Almost half of its tweets are retweets of other official Saudi Twitter accounts, especially @SaudiTourism. The account averages 50 tweets per month and retweets general news related to the kingdom, the king and education exclusively in Arabic. All the links on the tweets lead to news posted on www.saudi.gov.sa and the account does not interact nor engage with its followers.
