President of Croatia Kolinda GK

Croatia’s President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović set up her Twitter account on 6 October 2014 during the presidential election campaign. The @Kolindagk account was particularly active during the election campaign but since being sworn in as President @Kolindagk only tweets occasionally. A third of her tweets are retweets and her most used hashtag is #ZaBoljuHrvatsku (“For a better Croatia”). @Kolindagk is not yet well connected with her peers, mutually following only the Croatian government @VladaRH.

Government of Croatia Vlada R. Hrvatske

The Government of Croatia is among the 15 most prolific Twitter account among all governments posting more than 33 times each day. The Croatian government Twitter account is particularly engaging, and highly conversational with more than half of its tweets being @replies to other Twitter users. Tweets are mostly in Croatian, but some of them are in English. @VladaRH is also using Twitter to make connections, unilaterally following 511 other world leaders. The government in Zagreb is very well connected, having 57 mutual connections with other world leaders. 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.
