First Transatlantic Twittersation

Transatlantic Twittersation StorifyThis week saw a new digital diplomacy milestone, with the first live webchat featuring EU Ambassador to the USA João Vale de Almeida (@ValedeAlmeidaEU) and US Ambassador to the EU William Kennard (@USAmbEU).

Many of the questions tackled by the two Ambassadors related to the recent announcement that the EU and USA would begin negotiations for a new Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership.  Other issues ranged from foreign policy to favourite restaurants in Brussels.  I was pleased to receive a positive response from both Ambassadors to my question about future EU-US cooperation on digital diplomacy.
