Government of Thailand กรมประชาสัมพันธ์

Although Thailand doesn’t currently have an elected head of government the office of the prime minister is active on Twitter. The Thai government joined Twitter in January 2011 and posts on average four times per day. However, these are exclusively links to the government news website, providing information about the government`s activities. @prdthailand does not @mention or @reply followers and has never used a hashtag.

The Thai foreign ministry has two Twitter accounts in Thai @MFAThai and in English @MFAThai_PR_EN. The English feed was set up on 22 April 2010. Both accounts are quite formal mainly posting foreign ministry statements and often post pictures of the meetings on their Twitter streams. The Thai account has 13 times more followers than the English one. It tweets more than three times a day, occasionally @replies other users and @mentions them. On the other hand, @MFAThai_PR_EN only posts every two days and never mentions or replies followers.
