The account tweets official government news mainly in Russian, but sometimes in Uzbek and English. The news value of the tweets is rather low considering headlines like: “Woman of the year contest held in Ferghana” or “State flag of Uzbekistan marks 20 years”. Only 11% of its tweets are ever re-tweeted. Its most re-tweeted tweet is the announcement of the minimum wage on “01.12.2011 the minimum wage is 62,920 UZS”. The account doesn’t try to be conversational having never tweeted a single @mention or @reply and is not following anyone.
