Bulgarian politicians have been slow in adopting Twitter to communicate with their constituents. Bulgarian President Rosen Plevneliev used Twitter briefly during his election campaign in autumn 2011.

Rosen Plevneliev’s Twitter stint has been rather short-lived. His campaign account was set up on 29 September 2011. His campaign team sent the last tweet a month later on 30 October 2011, a TwitPic of his press conference after winning a majority of 52.58% defeating Ivaylo Kalfin from the Bulgarian Socialist Party in the second round of the presidential elections. His most popular tweet is his statement that: “Foreign policy must mirror the interests of the country, not through isolation but through connectivity.” In late May 2012 an un-official Twitter account @BulGovernment was set up based on an automated feed from the government website.
