While also experiencing peaks like other EU issues examined over time, leaders’ tweets related to the ‘EU representatives and institutions’ cluster were a more constant subject of their Twitter communication than other EU issues, the latter being more clearly linked to (one-off) events, and often close to disappearing from leaders’ Twitter discourse (see Figure 20).
Leaders’ tweets regarding interaction with EU representatives were particularly numerous in July 2019, when the European Council nominated the EU’s new institutional leadership and the candidate for European Commission President announced her proposed members of the Commission College. Many tweets were aimed at congratulating the various politicians on their nomination or appointment.
