Does SBY Tweet by Himself?

There’s no doubt someone is tweeting himself if he is a teenager or someone with less tech-challenged nature and looks, and a lot of spare time.  But what if that’s the President of Indonesia? I don’t know what to say but it is very much out of character to him. If you happen to  be  really fond of tweeting , find Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono  on this URL : https://twitter.com/sbyudhoyono. According to Daniel Sparringa on this official web page : http://www.presidenri.go.id/index.php/fokus/2013/04/11/8940.html, the Twitter account is for public communication purposes. Could it be Sparringa tweeting for SBY? Needless to say…

So what makes me wonder is: Why now? Isn’t it now much too late to get actively involved on social media? Even if that’s for political reason, this is so left behind. Many politicians have begun this long before 2013.

I’m not this keen on political discussion approaching 2014 general elections. There’s barely anything I like about Indonesian politics and in particular, politicians.
