Twiplomacy's ranking of world leaders is based on their global influence and trends shaping diplomacy digital on Twitter. The highest ranked global leaders are those who use Twitter as a direct channel of communication with their audience and influencers.

Weak emergence of African leaders

On the weak emergence of African leaders in the top 50 of the most influential world leaders on Twitter, the agency 'initiator of the ranking tried to provide explanations.

Indeed according to Twiplomacy, no African leader appears in the top 10 of world leaders and the reason "could be due to the fact that the region has only about 22.3 million Twitter users, a relatively small margin compared to to others. Conversely, Latin America has 76.5 million users, while North America has some 92.1 million Twitter users.

It should be noted that among the 10 most influential leaders in the world, Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi is first, followed closely by US President Joe Biden and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.
