President of Panama Juan Carlos Varela

Panama’s vice President Juan Carlos Varela won the presidential elections on 4 May 2014 and has been tweeting since 14 January 2011. @JC_Varela tweets personally except when he is at public events his team does the tweeting for him. Since his election his team chronicles his activities including pictures and videos in many of his tweets. His family, and most of all his wife @licastillo31, are often mentioned in his tweets and feature in the pictures he posts. Besides a strong social and political content, Varela´s posts often have a religious connotation and appeal to moral, transparency and equity.Varely is following 19 other world leaders, but so far only one, namely the presidency of Ecuador @Presidencia_EC has returned the favour.
