The Social Democrat MEP, Sergio Gutiérrez Prieto, featured as one of the most active Deputies this week. Prieto mostly tweeted about the Castilla La Mancha issue. Instead the British Deputies, Richard Corbett (S&D Group) and Nigel Farage (EFDD Group), top the rankings of the most retweeted and replied Deputies, respectively.
The first insight from this week's monitoring is that the absolute number of tweets followed a declining trajectory, following the EP plenary days (22-25th of October). This signals a strong effect of the monthly gathering in Strasbourg on MEPs' Twitter activity.
MEPs of the EPP group tweeted more than all other parties and increased their amount of online conversations week after week. Also looking at the tweets-to-MEPs ratio, EPP deputies proved to be more active than previous weeks. They ranked third, behind the EFDD and the Greens/EFA.
