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. The account is being used to update its followers on the government’s activities, including those in which the president is not attending. 15% of its tweets are retweets, often of the institutional @GuatemalaGob account. This account, according to statements made by the president, is managed by his communication team, and mainly follows news outlets and other ministries in order to share their news. The most retweeted tweet is a red alert warning about the 7.4 magnitude earthquake that struck off the Pacific coast of Guatemala on 7 November 2012. President Molina is mutually connected with three other world leaders mainly from Latin America.
