President of Guatemala Otto Pérez Molina
In one of his first tweets Otto Pérez Molina summed up the use of Twitter: “Communication is actually easier when I have it in my pocket.” Guatemala’s President Otto Perez Molina started his Twitter activity in November 2009 and used it to share updates for his agenda and the Patriotic Party. The account was used as a campaign account and has remained active since his election on 11 September 2011.
