It’s hard to imagine tweeting at the president and receiving any sort of response. The @BarackObama Twitter account is just anodyne recitations of policy points. This week, the president debuted the @POTUS account, which claims to be the actual Twitter account of the president, but so far, the only person he’s tweeted at is Bill Clinton.
But in Latin America, Twitter offers a direct line to heads of state. And no Latin American president is more engaged online than Rafael Correa.
