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 South American leaders namely @CFKAargentina, @dilmabr, @EPN and @JuanManSantos.

Foreign Ministry of Peru Cancillería del Perú

Peru’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been active on Twitter since November 2009, but the volume of tweets has significantly increased since January 2013, with on average eleven posts per day, and reaching around 50 tweets on some days. 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. Even so, there is a high volume of posts related to the agenda of former Foreign Minister Eda Rivas and the account recently introduced her successor Gonzalo Gutiérrez Reinel. Interestingly the @A_delPacifico, the alliance of four Latin American countries (Mexico, Chile, Colombia and Peru) bordering the Pacific is the most mentioned profile. @CancilleriaPeru is unilaterally following 410 other world leaders and has established mutual Twitter relations with 55.
