Others are hopeful that the Minister, just like many others, will use Twitter and social media as a way to engage with the citizens. However, the Minister doesn’t seem to have responded to any tweets in the 2 days since he joined Twitter. Instead, the account is used to tweet updates about where he’s going and who he’s meeting. Like meeting the Lebanese Forces leader, Samir Geagea:
Earlier this year, the Minister said that they are working on reducing the cost of internet and telecom services. During an interview on Voice of Lebanon, he indicated that work is underway to operate through fiber optics. Once functioning, the 4G service will be available to subscribers nationwide. We really hope, instead of having his team update us with his day to day life, that he uses the platform to connect and engage with the people by answering their questions and addressing their concerns. As well as keeping us updated with the work that they are doing. Follow us on Twitter:
