«Tweet me to your leader: How world leaders use Twitter»
Matthias Lüfkens, Managing Director Digital, Burson-Marsteller EMEA For many politicians Twitter has become the best tool to broadcast, connect and engage new audiences. Over three quarters of the world's governments have an official Twitter presence. 44% of all heads of state have a personal Twitter account as do 7 of the G8 leaders. Matthias Lüfkens will present the findings of Burson-Marsteller's Twiplomacy study looking at the tweeting habits of international organisations, heads of state and government and ministers of foreign affairs. The analysis of their tweets provide useful insights into how corporations should use the micro-blogging service to communicate and interact with new audiences.
