At least 184 countries, including India, are officially not present on Twitter through their real name, thus missing an opportunity to promote themselves on the hugely popular micro—blogging platform, a study says.

Only nine governments out of 193 UN member states own their country name Twitter handle and interestingly the @India handle is owned by an Indian person living in Guangzhou, China and the account owner shares pictures from his daily life and has made it clear that his Twitter handle is not for sale.

According to a study titled “Twiplomacy” by global public relations and communications firm, Burson—Marsteller, there is a huge missed opportunity for country promotion.PTI
