While the MFF was a permanent element of EU leaders’ tweets over the 18-month period, the special European Council meeting in February 2020 resulted in an absolute peak in EU leaders’ Twitter output on the MFF. As a result of the failure of the summit and the start of the coronavirus outbreak in Europe, however, there was a sharp drop in tweets in March 2020. From April 2020 onwards, considering the link established with the recovery package, the submission of the Commission’s new MFF proposal made in May 2020, as well as a first discussion in the European Council video-conference in June 2020, EU leaders’ tweets on the MFF increased again, reaching above average levels in May and June 2020.
