Figure 22 – Average number of tweets by EU leaders
who held the Council presidency, January 2019 June 2020

Figure 22 shows that Andrej Plenković’s tweets on EU issues steadily increased in the run-up to, and peaked at the start of the Croatian Presidency in January 2020. As for all EU leaders, Andrej Plenković’s level of tweets on EU issues were very low in March-April 2020, but recovered in May and June 2020.
When looking at the averages of three six-month periods, Andrej Plenković tweeted an average of 18 EU-related tweets a month during the period furthest from the Croatian Presidency (January-June 2019). In the six months prior to the Croatian Council Presidency, his tweets doubled to 37 tweets on average (including during the very quiet summer months), and then, during the Croatian Presidency, the number of tweets remained at a monthly average of 32 tweets, despite the coronavirus crisis shifting EU leaders’ attention to tweeting on national issues.
