[i]President Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono launched his official Twitter account on Saturday, choosing the username @SBYudhoyono for the social media service. The president had already attracted more than 130,000 followers on his account by Saturday afternoon, even without posting a single tweet or following anyone else. “For the first time, President SBY will greet the netizen and will make the [twitter] world as part of his new life,” Daniel Sparingga, one of the staff members from the president’s political communication team, said on Saturday at the president’s palace in Cipanas, West Java. [/i] [http://www.thejakartaglobe.com/news/sby-launches-twitter-account/585476] Maybe SBY wants to follow Obama's step by creating a Twitter account . As you may already know, Obama was using social media for his campaign purpose and getting pretty well results with that. But SBY could no longer be a president after 2014, so probably the twitter account isn't served for campaign purpose. Do you think SBY will read rants on our tweets? Will this new Twitter account bring some improvements in our government's performance? And have you already follow SBY on Twitter?

for what? SBY will be replaced by other person and I think SBY is not possible to read everything on twitter.

Hello May And you got some points there. But it would be fun if he mentions us on his tweet, don't you think so? Anyway, he has started to tweet something now - https://twitter.com/SBYudhoyono

I really would not be interested at all if he mentions our name even talk about us, what I want is whether he can provide the appropriate price to the public. Since held by him, the harder it is to survive and the poor is increasing.

Oh come on, May.. Being mentioned by someone popular is always something (sesuatu! ) Yeah, I wish our next president would serve better and stabilize the prices. Which candidate will you elect on the next President Election? Megawati maybe?

i think it`s wise decision.. why we don`t think it from the good perspective.. i believe that it`s the fastest way from our president and his staff for hearing directly from people.. i am rarely login into my twitter..so maybe it took time for following his account..

They even ever had a SMS gateway back then, but it was ended by being abandoned at all. Let's hope that they won't abandon this one

Haha, I've heard the news days ago. It was super hilarious haha. He just making some kind of sensation, what's the ultimate purpose on this? be sociable, haha i think it is ridiculous, though of course the one who manage the account is not SBY himself..

But hey, at least he has made some tweets by himself Tweets marked by *SBY* are directly coming from him and not from his staffs - or so he said.

SBY will barely read anything from his followers. He may not have that much amount of time. Some of his people may be are managing that account.

You're probably right, and that most likely happens that way. But the account was being made when he's being a president - not before that nor after that. So, somehow I expect something different..
