The government of Luxembourg is active on Twitter with an official Twitter account as well as a personal Twitter account of Prime Minister Xavier Bettel. Furthermore, Grand Duke Henri has been present on Twitter since 7 October 2010, the 10th anniversary of his accession to the throne with an institutional account for the Grand Ducal Family.

Tweets from Luxembourg leaders

Princely Palace of Luxembourg Cour Grand-Ducale

The grand ducal account broadcasts the activities of HRH Grand Duke Henri, his wife Grand Duchess Maria Teresa, his son Guillaume and his father former Grand Duke Jean. The Twitter account maintains a certain royal aloofness consistently quoting any member of the Grand Ducal Family in the third person with the customary HRH (S.A.R. in French), even when thanking their followers for the birthday wishes. The account tweets on average once every three days and has started to post pictures of the royal activities. The Grand Duchy of Luxembourg is following the Grand Duke’s own foundation @fondgrandducale and six other royal accounts including the @BritishMonarchy, the Dutch @KoninklijkHuis, the Belgian @MonarchieBe, the Norwegian @Kronprinsparet, Monaco’s @PalaisMonaco and the Spanish royal household @CasaReal.

Prime Minister of Luxembourg Bettel Xavier

Luxembourg’s Prime Minister Xavier Bettel joined Twitter on 2 August 2010 and is one of the few leaders who tweets himself. Xavier Bettel tweets on average once every two days in wither Luxembourgish, French or English, often sharing pictures of his trips and meetings. With a fifth of his tweets being @replies he can be considered as quite conversational. He regularly @mentions other users namely Luxembourg’s Minister of Infrastructure @FBausch and blogger @JerryWeyer. @Xavier_Bettel’s most retweeted tweet is his elegant reaction to a homophobic tweet sent by independent Greek MP Nikos Nikolopoulos: “@NikNikolopoulos hello, i heard your want to tell me something, but i dont speak greek. Sorry”. Prime Minister @Xavier_Bettel is not yet well connected to his peers, mutually following only three other world leaders.
