If we were to conduct a quick comparative analysis of the three platforms, then it would be clear that MENA agencies fare the best on Twitter by far. Through sharing relevant updates, interacting with the online community and garnering relatively large numbers of followers along the way, each of these agencies was able to establish a distinct identity on the microblogging platform as you can infer from the below numbers derived respectively from Twitter (tweets, followers, following) and social analytics website Klear (activity, popularity, responsiveness, skills and expertise, demographics).
