President of Venezuela Nicolás Maduro
Nicolás Maduro is in 22nd position among Venezuela’s most followed Twitterati, far behind his biggest political rival, opposition leader, Henrique Capriles (@HCapriles), the second most followed person in the country. However the @NicolasMaduro account is the second most active world leader with 64 tweets per day and his tweets receive phenomenal pick-up with an average retweet rate of 3,198 retweets per tweet. Strangely his tweets are only favorited on average 340 times. @NicolasMaduro only follows three other Latin American leaders, namely Argentina’s Cristina Kirchner (@CFKArgentina), Brazil’s Dilma Rousseff (@dilmabr), and Ecuador’s Rafael Correa (@MashiRafael) as well as a mix of government officials and state media. Maduro’s social media team has created 14 accounts in other languages besides Spanish, following the example of Pope Francis (@Pontifex_es). However, only the accounts in Arabic, Chinese, English, French and Portuguese are active.
