President of Colombia Juan Manuel Santos
Colombia’s President Juan Manuel Santos is Latin America’s most followed leader with more than 2.8 million followers. The account has been particularly active during the election campaign over the past months with almost five tweets per day. His campoaign team is frequently sharing pictures and videos from his election rallies and his most used hashtag is #SantosPresidente (Santos for president). During his first presidency the account has been used for soft diplomacy, namely to mend relations with former Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. “What do you think about the meeting between @Chavezcandanga and Juan Manuel Santos?” he asked his followers in August 2010 after having re-established diplomatic relations with his Venezuelan counterpart, which had turned sour under former president Alvaro Uribe. Juan Manuel Santos unilaterally follows 50 other world leaders and is mutually connected with 16 others.
