By narrowing the scope of analysis to tweets mentioning European topics, the data process retrieved 3 722 tweets. As shown in Figure 2, the highest number of tweets on matters linked to the EU sphere were issued by Andrej Plenković and Mateusz Morawiecki, tweeting an average of 21 and 27 tweets per month respectively. Andrej Plenković’s high level of activity on EU issues could be explained by the fact that Croatia held the rotating EU Council Presidency from 1 January 2020 to 30 June 2020 (see section 3.2.6). It is indeed particularly relevant to consider Europe related Twitter activity by EU leaders who have recently, or are about to, hold the rotating Presidency of the Council, such as Austrian Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, German Chancellor Angela Merkel and Portuguese Prime Minister António Costa, during the period considered in this study.
