Serbia

The Serbian government has used digital diplomacy during the devastating floods in May 2014, even setting up an official PayPal account to raise funds for flood victims. The president, the prime minister and the government are active Twitter users. However, they have not yet made many mutual connections with other foreign leaders.

President of Serbia Томислав Николић

Serbian President Tomislav Nikolić opened its personal Twitter account on 24 May 2012. The president sends almost one tweet per day. Tweets are written in Serbian and the account often tweets pictures and the president can often be seen congratulating Serbian athletes. One of the most popular and retweeted tweet is “Serbian pride!” including a picture of Serbia’s Davis Cup tennis team. He is mutually connected to three other foreign leaders.

The institutional account of the Serbian President was created only in April 2014 and is managed by the presidency media team. The account tweets on average every two days mainly in English to inform about the activities of President Tomislav Nikolić. Every tweet contains a picture of the president’s meeting with other foreign dignitaries. The vast majority of the tweets contain a link to the official government website, providing further information. @PresidencySrb unilaterally follows 47 other world leaders but only two have reciprocated, namely the presidency of Bulgaria @BGpresidency, and the Irish government @MerrionStreet.
