Prime Minister of Greece a.tsipras
Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras has had a personal Twitter account since 13 July 2011. He has been fairly active, almost twice a day on average, although activity has clearly spiked during his visit to the US in January 2013, while in opposition, as well as the most recent election campaign in January 2015. A few days before the election, the account was used to organise an online Q&A – citizens submitted a total of 33,996 questions and comments using the hashtag #asktsipras, while a select few were answered by Alexis Tsipras on an interview live-streamed on the website of the party-affiliated newspaper Avgi. @atsipras is clearly oriented towards a Greek audience, tweeting almost exclusively in Greek about official visits and meetings, interviews in international media, campaign appearances and party politics, as well as speeches in the Greek Parliament. The account’s most popular tweet is one thanking Dr.House (i.e. British actor Hugh Laurie) for his congratulatory tweet, wishing him luck in his new role as Prime Minister.
