In this episode of The #DigitalDiplomacy Podcast we talk to Matthias Lüfkens, who is Head of Digital at the PR agency Burson Cohn Wolfe in Geneva, Switzerland, and author of the annual #Twiplomacy study. In the interview, Matthias Lüfkens talks about the results of the Twiplomacy study 2018 and the changes he has witnessed in the diplomatic uses of social media since he started the study series in 2012. Lüfkens tells us how world leaders and foreign ministries use the different social media platforms, what they communicate, and who they direct their messages to. He talks about the need for diplomatic actors to be on social media, disinformation, filter bubbles, risks and mistakes, why the Danish Prime minister Lars Løkke Rasmussen and Foreign Minister Anders Samuelsen are among his favorite digital diplomats and much more.
