The data collected enable not only assessment of who communicated most via Twitter on bilateral meetings with other EU leaders, but also an illustration of how much peers communicated on meetings with each leader (see Figure 9). This shows that some EU leaders, such as Angela Merkel, Sebastian Kurz, Charles Michel, António Costa, Stefan Löfven, Pedro Sánchez, and Xavier Bettel, used more or less the same number of tweets as their peers used on meetings with them. At the same time, there are EU leaders whose peers tweeted a lot more about meetings with them than they did themselves. For example, Emmanuel Macron received three times more tweets then he made about meetings he had with other EU leaders, Andrej Babiš received twice as many and Giuseppe Conte even five times as many (probably due to the coronavirus situation in Italy). Conversely, Mateusz Morawiecki was mentioned nearly four times less in tweets about bilateral meetings than the number of tweets he himself issued.
