The leadership of Honduras has been active on Twitter for several years, but the institutional accounts created under the previous government of President Porfirio Lobo Sosa namely @PresidenciadeHN and @ComunicadosHN have been abandoned and are now dormant.

President of Honduras Juan Orlando H.

Honduran President Juan Orlando set up his Twitter account on 2 March 2013 as he was preparing for his election campaign. Since becoming President in January 2014 he is quite active on the platform often tweeting pictures of his meetings including selfies with his fans and the first lady @anagarciacarias who is also the most retweeted account on his profile. His team tweets on average five times per day and a third of his tweets are retweets often of the institutional account of the presidency @PResidencia_HN. @JuanOrlandoH is not yet well connected with his peers, mutually only following four other Latin American leaders.
