Marking the Foreign Secretary’s 200,000 twitter follower


The Foreign Secretary William Hague welcomed student Gopal Rao to the Foreign Office. The meeting was the result of a competition launched by the Foreign Secretary earlier in the year to thank his 200,000 Twitter followers for their comments, engagement and ideas. The prize – a meeting with him and the chance to tweet about his visit.

The Foreign Secretary had asked his followers to tweet a response to the question: “What do you think is the biggest contribution UK foreign policy can make to the world?”

The Foreign Secretary selected Gopal’s entry from over 120 responses submitted.
