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. In the past years the account has become less conversational, occasionally retweeting other official accounts and rarely mentioning other ministers and governors. 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 mixing public policies facts with personal anecdotes. She also uses @CFKArgentina to respond to newspapers investigations and opinion articles. @CFKArgentina is well connected to her peers, mutually following 10 other Latin American leaders as well as Russian President @PutinRF_Eng.

Government of Argentina Casa Rosada

Casa Rosada, (Pink House), named after the official seat of the presidential administration is the official Twitter account of the Argentinean Presidency. It tweets the most important government statements and activities, and almost half of its tweets are tretweets the @CFKArgentina account and other ministries. The account is managed by three community managers. @CasaRosadaAR posted its first tweet on 3 September 2011 as a way of reporting governmental announcements and promoting presidential activities. The account usually retweets what the president and her ministers tweet. Unlike the personal account of Cristina Fernández, @CasaRosadaAR uses the third person with a formal language. The account follows a number of other world leaders, senior government officials, public institutions, and multilateral international organisations but is mutually only connected to three other Latin American governments. The account blocks any aggressive or critical users and in 2014 it became a political communications tool attacking journalist and media and even defending the Kirchner´s hotel company Hotesur, investigated by Argentinian justice.
