E-Diplomacy on Twitter. International Comparison of Strategies and Effectivity


The primary aim of this article is to analyze the Twitter communication strategy and its efficiency. The authors took into consideration four Ministers of foreign affairs from Great Britain, Poland, Ukraine, and Russia (their private accounts have also been examined). However, considering that Ministers of Poland and Russia did not have their own Twitter accounts (Witold Waszczykowski and Siergiej Lawrow), authors decided to analyze private accounts of Great Britain’s and Ukrainian’s Ministers (Boris Johnson and Pavlo Klimkin). All examined profiles are accredited. Because of the popularity of Twitter and the appearance of the new type of diplomacy, which involves social networking sites, the authors attempted to make a qualitative and quantitative analysis of given accounts. The results present the effectivity index and also show that spontaneously published messages on social media have a significant impact on how state institutions convey content. What is more, the qualitative and quantitative analysis and the effectivity index allows to present the tools needed for e-diplomacy on Twitter.

A critical reflection on improving effective team communication

1 Introduction Reflecting on previous experience is an important ability for nurses to recognize our own strengths and weaknesses, empowering us to generate an alternative and enhance future performance. 1 Compared with the process of simply questioning our practice using the questions “how” and “why”, critical emancipatory reflection is regarded as a more complex task, which requires us to identify the factors that constrain effective practice through analysis of our work activities in a deep, systematic, and direct way. 2 The process of critical

Effective Friction Angle Of Deltaic Soils In The Vistula Marshlands

1 Introduction 1.1 Aim of research This research is focused on effective angle of internal friction and compares the results for the Vistula Marshlands muds and peats with similar soft soils. Effective shear strength parameters of the deltaic soils near Gdańsk are measured in drained and undrained triaxial compression tests and estimated with the Norwegian Institute of Technology (NTH) method using the Cone Penetration Tests (CPTU) sounding. The observed dilative-contractive soil behaviour is discussed taking into account the CPTU classification chart
