First tweet

Government of Montenegro Vlada Crne Gore

The government of Montenegro’s Twitter feed in Montenegrin informs about the government’s positions on the country`s politics. Usually this account has been less active with only one tweet every two days. However, this has substantially changed with the floods which affected the Balkans in May 2014. This account gave several updates a day on the situation and especially informed in how far Montenegro is assisting in terms of emergency aid. While there have been only few pictures before the flood, @VladaCG made extensive use of pictures and videos during the catastrophe. Unsurprisingly, the most retweeted tweet was sent on 17 May 2014 and is about sending the army to assist Serbia in fighting the floods.
