They topped the list of most popular on Twitter politicians in July. Within that more dialogue, experts maintain that Esperanza Aguirre is as the most watched, with 36,000 readers. Many politicians are leaving their profiles after the elections. The Socialist candidate for the Presidency of the Government, Alfredo Perez Rubalcaba (@conRubalcaba), the Coordinator of the electoral campaign of the PSOE, Elena Valenciano (@ElenValenciano), and the President of the community of Madrid, Esperanza Aguirre (@EsperanzAguirre), topped the list of most popular on Twitter politicians during the month of July. This emerges from a study of the web, the 30 tuiteros, which demonstrates that neither summer nor heat away these politicians from public life, even by Internet.
Politicians who constitute an exceptional case if you have in mind that, according to the study political 2.0: after the election of the company’s advertising agency 101, more than half of the leaders reduced their activity in the social networks after past elections. As an example, the study quotes the leader of the Socialists Madrid, Tomas Gomez, who left to die his Twitter after the defeat before Aguirre, and the former President of Castile – La Mancha, Spain Jose Maria Barreda, who seems to have stayed silent after losing the election compared with Maria Dolores de Cospedal (PP). This Agency’s report also suggests that 70% of the politicians not maintained fluid communications with citizens, since there is no answer to your messages, something that does not makes them very dear in the network. Therefore, the popularity in the Twitter network is not measured only by the number of followers or fans, but also for interaction with the users or the number of messages that have been shared or retuiteados, as explained by Antonio Davila, founder of the project 30 tuiteros. According to Davila, the ranking allows you to discriminate against opportunistic politicians from those who really believe in democracy 2.0, in which the citizen dialogues with the candidate 24 hours 365 days a year, and not only view once every four years when it is summoned to the polls. Within which more dialogue, experts maintain that Esperanza Aguirre as the most watched, with 36,000 readers, followed by the former State of equality Bibiana Aido, and the spokesman of the PP in the Congress, Soraya Saenz de Santamaria, is with more than 11,000 each. However, according to the report by agency 101, there are other politicians who have failed to connect with the citizens on the network in the same way and, for example, once past the elections of 22 may have neglected their social networks.
Between the dumb politicians in the network, the study emphasizes the Minister of health, Social policy and equality, Leire Pajin, who despite having been trending topic on Twitter, or subject of great interest in this network, as a result of his photographs in swimsuit, has not never published a TWiT. The latest political developments, among which stand out the electoral advancement or the 15-M movement, have influenced the Twitter ranking, so those politicians who have been able to connect with that discontent have risen dramatically, maintains Davila. Thus, scholars explain that despite having lost the position after the last elections, the Secretary general of the PSOE in Extremadura, Guillermo Fernandez Vara, maintains a great activity on the network from which makes opposition controlling what makes who governs. Both studies suggests that, although sometimes use only in election campaigns, networks are a few basic tools of politicians to go to citizens.
