President of Argentina Cristina Kirchner
When Cristina Fernández de Kirchner started to tweet @CFKArgentina on 26 August 2010 she immediately began a Twitter conversation with her peers, former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez of Venezuela and former Chilean President Sebastián Piñera. The Argentinean president is one of the most connected world leaders and when her husband Néstor Kirchner died of a Heart attack on October 2010 many of her Twitter friends tweeted messages of condolences. Following the death of Venezuela’s President Hugo Chavez, Cristina Fernandez remembered him on Twitter: “Commander Chavez, the comrade and friend, has definitively entered in history. Men like Chavez don’t die, they sow”. She also celebrated what she called "the decade accomplished" after 10 years of Kirchner’s administration started in 2003: “Without any doubt that the decade that began on May 25, 2003 is a decade accomplished by all Argentines”. The account makes good use of pictures and videos and uses a very personal approach, posting long texts divided in several tweets. This has become a trademark of the presidential use of Twitter. She also posted several selfies including one taken by the staff during the opening of the Facebook offices in Buenos Aires.
