Moldova

Moldova’s President and Prime Minister have official Twitter accounts, but neither is active. Chiril Gaburici, the new Prime Minister created a Twitter account a week after he was sworn in but the account is still inactive. The institutions they represent, the presidency and the government respectively, are active on Twitter, however their feeds are automatically generated from other social media platforms. In contrast, the Foreign Ministry is an active and well-connected Twitter user, with a high engagement rate with other world leaders.

President of Moldova Nicolae Timofti

The President of Moldova Nicolae Timofti joined Twitter on 19 March 2012, but since then he has tweeted only four times, all on the same day, 6 November 2013. His first post announced a new website for the presidential administration and the three other messages were videos shared from the president’s official YouTube channel. Despite the lack of activity, @Nicolae_Timofti unilaterally follows the Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev @MedvedevRussia, and is being followed by four other world leaders.

Presidency of Moldova Nicolae Timofti

The Presidency of Moldova set up the institutional Twitter account @presedinte_md on 31 May 2013 and its feed is mainly generated by the activity on President Timofti’s YouTube channel. The other messages are links to press releases published on the website of the presidential administration. Therefore, the account is a one-way communication tool, without Twitter adapted content or any forms of interaction. Although @presedinte_md does not follow any other Twitter users, it is followed by four world leaders.

Government of Moldova Guvernul R. Moldova

The Moldovan government joined Twitter on 8 April 2011 under former Prime Minister Vlad Filat, but the @GuvernulRM account went silent one year later, on 15 August 2012. Probably having lost the password to the account, the government under former Prime Minister Iurie Leancă set up a new Twitter account @GuvernulRM on 15 August 2014. The Twitter account is linked to the institution’s Facebook page and automatically tweets whenever a new post is published on Facebook. @GuvernulRMD is unilaterally following 16 other world leaders, governments or international organisations. In return, the most high-level follower is the Georgian Prime Minister @PrimeMinisterGE.

Foreign Ministry of Moldova MFA Moldova

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Moldova launched its institutional Twitter account on 12 October 2012. @Diplomacy_RM is a very active user that employs Twitter adapted content and language, including hashtags, photos, videos and links about the activities of Foregin Minister #Natalia_Gherman and her deputy #Iulian_Groza often mentioned with hashtags. In addition, the ministry has a high engagement rate, often retweeting or mentioning other users, mostly representatives of other governments or international organisations. The signing of the Association Agreement with the European Union on 27 June 2014 generated more content and engagement than any other event. @Diplomacy_RM tweets in English and is very well connected to his peers, mutually following 40 other world leaders.
