Moldova

Moldova’s President Nicolae Timofti has both a personal and an institutional Twitter account. While the former was only briefly activated in 2013, the latter is used mainly as a sharing platform for the president’s YouTube channel. The account of the Moldovan Government is dormant since 2012, but the Foreign Ministry’s has become more active in recent months and is well connected. The personal account of Prime Minister Iurie Leancă, fairly active since it was set up last year, is also steadily growing in the number of mutual followers.

President of Moldova Nicolae Timofti

The President of Moldova Nicolae Timofti joined Twitter on 19 March 2012, but since then 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 shared videos from the President’s official YouTube account, Președintele Nicolae Timofti. Despite the lack of activity, @Nicolae_Timofti unilaterally follows the Russian Prime Minister Dmitri Medvedev @MedvedevRussia, and is being followed by five 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 represent links to press releases published on the presidential website. Although fairly active with one post per day, the account is used simply as a one-way communication tool, without having a personalized profile or content adapted to this platform. @presedinte_md does not follow any other Twitter users, but it is followed by the Serbian presidency @PresidencySrb.
