Trinidad and Tobago

The Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago uses Kamla, her first name, in the Twitter handles of her personal and her institutional accounts. Female empowerment is a recurring issue in all accounts, as Kamla Persad-Bissessar is the first woman to serve as prime minister of Trinidad and Tobago. The @15StClairAve Twitter account set up in July 2010 has been dormant since July 2012.
