Haiti

Haiti’s government has increasingly made use of Twitter in the last years and the president, the prime minister and the foreign minister all have personal profiles. President Michel Martelly, also known by his musician stage name “Sweet Micky” initially joined Twitter as @PresidentMicky. The President’s account was renamed to @MichelJMartelly in March 2012 and the former account of @PresidentMicky has been protected so that no one could ‘take the mickey’.
