Amazing! The Deputy Ruler of Dubai just launched his official Twitter account
If you're not on Twitter but have been looking for a reason to join - we've got you one. The latest Al Maktoum Royal to join Twitter has made his first appearance on the platform and we're here for it.
H.H. Sheikh Maktoum bin Mohammed, Deputy Ruler of Dubai already has more than 15,000 followers - and launched his account to mark his meeting with CEO Jack Dorsey during his first ever trip to the UAE.
We are pleased to have hosted Twitter’s CEO and cofounder @jack on his first visit to the Middle East and the UAE. I am also pleased to have launched my new Twitter account in his presence pic.twitter.com/j916R4UUWB— Maktoum Bin Mohammed (@MaktoumMohammed) June 24, 2019
Jack Dorsey is on a 'Tweep Tour', visiting Twitter offices from all around the world. With Dubai being the only office in the MENA region, Jack stopped by to kick start the #YouthForGood initiative that aims to promote the use of Twitter to support and promote social and humanitarian work through the younger generation in the region.
Dubai and Twitter share many aspects in common. Both stand as global hubs open for people, build bridges of understanding and dialogue among nations and represent platforms to nurture youth’s energies and creativity. pic.twitter.com/hdLujWWzUy— Maktoum Bin Mohammed (@MaktoumMohammed) June 24, 2019
With Dubai and Twitter being global hubs for people in the world, we couldn't think of a better time and place to start this initiative.
Last week, Jack visited Dublin, and during the past few months he has stopped off in London, Hamburg, Paris, Madrid, Brazil, Mexico, South Korea and Singapore. He even got a special Twitter sticker on his passport welcoming him to Dubai!
