Lift11: Matthias Lüfkens, Twiplomacy [en]

[fr] Notes de la conférence Lift11 à Genève.

Live and India-lagged notes from the Lift11 Conference in Geneva. Might contain errors and personal opinions. Use the comments if you spot nasty errors.

Obama doesn’t tweet himself, but the Russian president does. He has recently split the account though, and his “personal” account is really interesting. He’s an amateur photographer, for example.

Twitter relations between Obama, Russian president and Downing street follow each other, so could send each other secret DMs — probably more secure than the traditional channels 😉

The French president has started reactivating his account, which was a little boring… Not very personal, but already a great step!

Very much used in Latin America. Nine Latin American presidents are on Twitter, and actively interconnected.

Interesting? Even if these political figures are not reading their @replies themselves, most probably their staff is monitoring them. Direct line of access.
