Governor enters the Twittersphere with Who’s Who pics of #G20


Queensland Governor Paul de Jersey has entered the Twittersphere with a series of posts of himself with G20 dignitaries.

His most recent post featured Twit pics of him greeting Russian President Vladimir Putin with a handshake upon his arrival in Brisbane airport last night.

Governor de Jersey also tweeted a picture of himself casually chatting with Singapore Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

On Wednesday the governor proudly posted his first tweet, and staff followed with the official announcement that he had entered the Twittersphere, featuring a photograph of him writing and posting that historic first tweet.

His Twitter account also featured photos of him with Korean Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister Choi Kyung-hwan, IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde, Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdoğan, and the OECD Secretary-General Angel Gurria.

Governor de Jersey was pro-active with the courts’ acceptance of social media in his former role as chief justice of the Supreme Court of Queensland and allowed reporters to tweet from the courtroom unless directed otherwise by a judge.
