Poland

The Polish government is very active on Twitter with the presidency, the government and the foreign ministry all having active institutional accounts. Since the start of the presidential election campaign, President Komorowski’s Twitter activity went up, however the prime minister is not active on her personal account and the foreign minister still does not have a Twitter account.

Tweets from Poland leaders

President of Poland Bronisław 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 but in February 2015 it was reactivated as the presidential campaign started in Poland. The account is very active now and seems to be strictly focused on campaign news, including pictures and short statements, updates on Komorowski’s bus tour across Poland and mentioning the notable supporters of Komorowski. There’s no interaction with other profiles, almost no retweets, mostly one way broadcasting. Funnily the account manager posted a traditional group picture at a campaign event describing it as a “#seflie”.

Presidency of Poland Prezydent.pl

@PrezydentPL is the official Twitter account of the Polish presidency. While the @komorowski account is focused on the presidential campaign, the @prezydentpl account is not getting involved in campaigning. 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”. The account makes good use of videos and pictures. The absence of retweets, @mentions and @replies does not make this profile attractive for Twitter users to follow.

Prime Minister of Poland Ewa Kopacz

The Twitter account of Poland's Prime Minister @EwaKopacz is inactive. Although Ewa Kopacz hasn't sent a single tweet she has already more than 14,000 followers. She is however following 29 other accounts, including Polish politicians, bloggers and journalists. It seems the profile hasn’t been updated for a while, as the link to kopacz.pl in her Twitter bio still redirects to the website of the Speaker of the Sejm (Parliament), a position she held until September 2014.

Government of Poland Kancelaria Premiera

The official Twitter profile of the prime minister’s office is highly active, however formal and strictly informative in character. Tweets are formally divided including keywords, such as “Announcement”, “Photo” or “Reminder”. Account seems to be intended to provide journalists and general public with the up to date information rather than for discussion. @PremierRP frequently retweets other governmental accounts, including the Ministry of Labour and Social Policy (@MPiPS_RP), the Ministry of Internal Affairs (@MSW_RP) and the Ministry of Defense (@mon_pl). The three most used hashtags are #kopacz and #DecyzjeRządu (“Governmental Decisions”).

Foreign Ministry of Poland MSZ RP

Poland’s foreign ministry tweets in Polish @MSZ_RP and in English @PolandMFA and ranks among the top 20 best connected foreign ministries. In 2014 the foreign ministry in Warsaw also secured the @Polska and @Poland Twitter handles used to promote Poland worldwide. The foreign ministry’s use of Twitter lists also 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. However Poland’s Foreign Minister, Grzegorz Schetyna does not have a personal Twitter account. The @MSZ_RP account is very active posting on average 22 tweets per day and 88% are retweets of other foreign ministry officials including the @PLPermRepEU , @PremierRP, ministry’s spokesperson @maw75 and the @HistDyplomacji – an educational Twitter account, covering the history of Polish diplomacy. The use of hashtags and @mentions shows a good understanding of Twitter, however number of @replies significantly dropped after former Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski left to become Speaker of the Sejm, the Polish Parliament.
