El Salvador

Since the election in March 2014 leaders in El Salvador have embraced Twitter as a communication tool and the new President has a personal Twitter account.

President of El Salvador Salvador Sánchez C.

“Thank you people of El Salvador!” sent after winning the presidential elections has become President Salvador Sánchez Cerén’s most popular tweet after winning the elections in March 2014. The former vice president of El Salvador opened his personal Twitter account on May 2010. The account has been very active during the campaign and beyond with an average of 22 tweets sent each day. “Forward” (#adelante) and #VoteMFLN (#VotaFMLN) are the most used hashtags on his personal account.

Presidency of El Salvador Casa Presidencial

On 9 November 2009, the presidency of El Salvador under Mauricio Funes opened an official Twitter account to serve as channel for updates and news. However, it only sent its first tweet a year later: “President Mauricio Funes will attend the inauguration of the First Indigenous Congress today at the Port of Liberty”. The account is fairly active with 13 tweets per day. Its most used hashtag is still former #PresidenteFunes but it has started to retweet tweets from President Salvador @SanchezCeren. In December 2011 the former president used the institutional account to send his “affection and hugs” to Argentine President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner who was about to undergo surgery to remove a thyroid cancer.
