Croatia

Croatia is presented on Twitter with five accounts with some of them being more actively connecting and interacting with world leaders than others. Prime Minister Zoran Milanović is not active on Twitter but his government’s account is among the most prolific. The president’s account is dormant as Ivo Josipović prefers to interact with his fans on Facebook and the presidency has a Twitter account @uredprh since 31 December 2012, but has never tweeted.

President of Croatia Ivo Josipović

Croatian President Ivo Josipović stopped tweeting over Easter 2011, focusing his social media activity on Facebook, where he has more than 100,000 likes. The Croatian President was very conversational with one third of tweets being @replies to his followers. His Twitter team also has a sense of humour: on the day of the presidential elections on 27 December 2009 he tweeted: “Pssssst. A few hours...” and a link to U2’s Beautiful Day video. After his election the account has become less active and conversational tweeting only 27 times in 2010 and 2011 before becoming dormant on 22 April 2011.

Government of Croatia Vlada R. Hrvatske

The Government of Croatia is the third most prolific Twitter account among all governments posting 28 times each day. The Croatian government is particularly engaging, and highly conversational with almost half of its tweets being @replies to other Twitter users. Tweets are mostly in Croatian, but some of them are in English. Among its most popular tweets is the joy that the account, opened on 22 December 2011 is now finally verified by Twitter. Not surprisingly the Twitter activity spiked In May during the floods which affected Croatia and the neighboring countries. Consequently, the most retweeted tweet was sent on 19 May 2014, assuring assistance for the victims of the flood. @VladaRH predominantly uses HootSuite to send its tweets. Furthermore, the account is well connected among world leaders, having 24 mutual connections.
