President of Russia Владимир Путин
Russian President Vladimir Putin has a personal Twitter account which was set up by his campaign staff on 16 December 2011. An English account @PutinRF_eng was added in November 2012. Vladimir Putin does not tweet himself and while the account descriptions explains his personal tweets are signed #VP, no tweet has yet carried his initials. The account merely broadcasts official news from the Kremlin’s website and in many respects is very similar to the official @KremlinRussia account. Tweets are form announcements of Vladimir Putin’s daily meetings and, unlike @KremlinRussia, there has been no engagement with other accounts. No @reply has ever been sent, although the account has started to use @mentions of other world leaders. @PutinRF doesn’t follow any other world leader, but the English account @PutinRF_Eng mutually follows four, namely @CFKArgentina, @JuanManSantos, @PresidenceMali, @dilmabr.
