Figure 9 – Twitter communication by EU leaders on meetings with other EU leaders

The collected data allow to further focus on reporting about bilateral meetings between EU leaders by identifying cases where EU leaders issued a particularly high number of tweets reporting on bilateral meetings with one specific European Council colleague. Figure 10 shows that Mateusz Morawiecki used a very high portion of his overall tweets on bilateral meetings mentioning Andrej Babiš (61 of his 88 tweets). It also shows that Peter Pellegrini used a third of his tweets to communicate on meetings with Mateusz Morawiecki and one third on meetings with Andrej Babiš, indicating that most contacts for these leaders were with their V4 group colleagues. A similar finding applies to the Franco-German partnership, where Angela Merkel dedicated one third of her tweets to meetings with Emmanuel Macron, who even dedicated half of his tweets to bilateral meetings with Angela Merkel.
