PA Prime Minister’s Twitter Account Says it All

There were two tweets on the PA Prime Minister's Twitter account: the first announcing his appointment, the second, 16 days later, announcing his resignation.

The Twitter Account Lifespan of the latest Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority, Rami Hamdallah

Rumors began circulating early Thursday morning, June 20, that the Palestinian Authority Prime Minister, Rami Hamdallah, had tendered his resignation.  Hamdallah had only been appointed to the position a little over two weeks ago.

An enterprising journalist noticed that Hamdallah’s official twitter account, @Palestinegov, stated all there was to say about Hamdallah’s career as prime minister.

There are two tweets, one announcing his appointment, on June 4, and the second and final one, on June 20, announcing that he had handed his “resignation to the President of the PA.  Official note will be released soon.  R.H.”

It is unclear whether there will ever be another tweet on this account, but in the 12 hours between the time this account was copied for posterity and the time this article was published, Mr. Hamdallah’s Twitter followers swelled from 102 to 170.
