The @desdelamoncloa profile has not only increased its number of followers but has also been gaining influence on the social networks.
A comparative study between the Internet 2.0 tools used by various European governments shows that @desdelamoncloa is one of the top-ranking profiles based on the number of followers and influence on the Internet, ahead of such other profiles as @Elysee (the official Twitter account of the French Government) and @KremlinRussia (the official Twitter account of the Russian Government).
Various measurement tools indicate that the Moncloa Palace account is the third most influential on a list of other western governments, only behind those of the White House and Downing Street.
Klout, one of the most well-known tools to measure influence on social networks, gives the Twitter account of Moncloa Palace an influence rating of 72%.
Furthermore, according to the "Twitter Transparency Report" by Klout, the Government of Spain is one of those that make the least demands on Twitter to hand over information about its users. The company states that a total of 849 governmental requests for information were made, of which 679 came from the US Government, 98 from Japan, 11 from Canada and 11 from the United Kingdom. Countries such as Mexico, Spain and Peru made fewer than 10 such requests.
The 2012 report from the United Nations on the development of online presence by governmental institutions around the world indicates that, in terms of Internet presence, the Government of Spain continues to lead the group of southern European countries. The report also highlights the ease with which the website can be browsed and the fact it is offered in other languages.
