IMG_5793Follow us on Twitter @uayouthdelegate

Twitter diplomacy, also «Twiplomacy» or «hashtag diplomacy«, is the use of social network and microblogging website, Twitter, by heads of state, leaders of intergovernmental organizations (IGOs), and their diplomats to conduct diplomatic outreach and public diplomacy.

Twitter has taken on diverse and occasional roles in diplomatic communications, from cordial announcements of bilateral cooperation to terse exchanges and diplomatic jabs, as well as more casual posts.
