Foreign policy is garnering a great deal of attention
Foreign policy is garnering lots of attention these days, also on social media. In order to make foreign policy even more transparent and to enable those interested in politics to learn more about foreign policy issues, many top officials as well as units within the Ministry communicate on Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn.
Top diplomats have their own accounts
Some of the accounts have a regional focus, for example our policy on Asia, Africa, the EU or Eastern Europe. Others cover specific issues, such as Brexit, stabilisation and humanitarian assistance, the United Nations, training at the Federal Foreign Office or cultural relations and education policy. The Crisis Response Centre has a Twitter account (@AA_SicherReisen) to supplement its Sicher Reisen app. The Policy Planning Staff, too, maintains a Twitter feed that gives users an insight into its daily activities.
The German missions abroad are also expanding their social media footprint. Everyone who has not already connected with us is more than welcome to do so – we look forward to the conversation!
