President of Peru Ollanta Humala Tasso

Peru’s president Ollanta Humala Tasso has seriously reduced his Twitter activity since 2012 only tweeting intermittently on key occasions such as his tweet from 15 April 2015 saluting the possible reestablishment of the relations between Cuba and the USA. @Ollanta_HumalaT rarely @mentions or @replies to other users. However, the tweet that received the highest number of retweets was his condolences on the death of Hugo Chávez: “Goodbye Commander and friend Hugo Chavez. My deepest condolences to his family and all the people of Venezuela”, he tweeted on 5 March 2013. @Ollanta_HumalaT has mutual connections with four other Latin American leaders namely @CFKArgentina, @EPN, @JuanManSantos, @dilmabr.

Foreign Ministry of Peru Cancillería del Perú

Peru’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs is among the 20 best connected foreign ministries unilaterally following 354 and having established mutually Twitter relations with 59 other world leaders. The @CancilleriaPeru has been active on Twitter since November 2009, but the volume of tweets has significantly increased since January 2013, with on average of nine posts per day. The ministry’s profile also changed their approach from cold news updates to a more engaging activity, by using more @replies, #FollowFriday tweets, and calls-to-action to stimulate users’ response; and promoting multimedia live content. The foreign ministry makes a good use of pictures in almost every tweet and often @mentions Foreign Minister @GutierrezReinel and President @Ollanta_HumalaT.
