United States

The Obama administration is seen as leader in the use of Twitter and other social networks to reach out to new audiences, however neither the White House, Barack Obama, nor the State Department connect on Twitter with their international counterparts. Obama’s Twitter account accumulates the superlatives: he is the first world leader to join Twitter in March 2007, he is the most followed world leader, follows the most people and is the most listed, but that doesn’t make him the most connected world leader.
