Poland

The Polish government is very active on Twitter with the presidency, the government and the foreign ministry all having active institutional accounts. However President Komorowski’s personal account is dormant, the new prime minister is not active and the new foreign minister does not have a Twitter account.

President of Poland Bronis?aw Komorowski

The personal Twitter account of President Bronisław Komorowski has been inactive since autumn 2011 when he invited his followers to follow the institutional Twitter account of the Polish presidency instead. The personal profile of President Komorowski was only used during his presidential campaign in 2010. During the campaign the account was updated frequently, tweeting campaign news regarding meetings or TV interviews. The form of the tweets is rather official with traditional, one-way communication and no conversation with other Twitter users.

Presidency of Poland Bronisław Komorowski

@PrezydentPL is the official Twitter account of the Polish presidency. The tweets are very official and only broadcast news, often linking to the official website. Most tweets refer to the events attended by President Bronisław Komorowski or his representatives and general issues, reflecting the president’s perception by the general public in Poland as the “providential man”, not being involved in current political issues. The account makes good use of videos and pictures. For example, one of the most popular tweets was referring to the anniversary of the introduction of martial law in December 1981. It was just one word “Pamiętamy!”(”We remember!”) and a picture. The absence of retweets, @mentions and @replies does not make this profile attractive for Twitter users to follow.

The official Twitter profile of the prime minister’s office is highly active, however formal and strictly informative in character. The account frequently retweets other governmental accounts, including the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy (@MPiPS_RP), the Ministry of Internal Affairs (@MSW_RP), former government spokesman (@PawelGras) and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs @MSZ_RP as well. The hashtags used most often by @PremierRP are #kopacz and #kprm, the abbreviation of the prime minister’s office, #DecyzjeRządu (“Governmental Decisions”) and #Ukraine.

Foreign Ministry of Poland MSZ RP

The Polish foreign ministry tweets in Polish @MSZ_RP and in English @PolandMFA. The foreign ministry’s use of Twitter lists deserves praise, the Polish account has a Twitter list of Foreign Ministry officials and the English account maintains a complete list of the 157 Polish missions worldwide. The @MSZ_RP account is very active in both posting own content, and retweeting other foreign ministry officials including the @PolishEmbassyUS, the @PolishEmbassyUK and the foreign ministry’s spokesperson @maw75. The use of hashtags, @mentions and @replies shows a good understanding of Twitter. The @PolandMFA account ranks among the best connected foreign ministries on Twitter, mutually following 56 other world leaders.
