President Museveni's twitter account has been verified. It now has a blue badge and the only twitter account for a Ugandan that is verified. This means that it is authentic. He joins other Presidents like Jakaya Kikwete of Tanzania, Paul Kagame of Rwanda and Uhuru Kenyatta of Kenya whose accounts are also verified.
President Museveni's account was created in March 2010, but his first tweet was made today. The account has over 20,000 followers though the President does not follow anyone.
