Oceania

Governments in Oceania use Twitter the least of all world leaders. Only a third of the 13 countries and island states in the Pacific have a presence on Twitter. Australia’s Prime Minister Kevin Rudd @KRuddMP is among the 20 most followed world leaders and he is also one of the chattiest and tweets personally signing his tweets “KR”. Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs is also among the best connected, mutually following nine other ministries of foreign affairs. New Zealand’s Prime Minister John Key has five mutual connections. The governments of Fiji, Samoa, Vanuatu don’t follow any peers.
