World leaders fond of Twitter

Ahhh, yes - social networks. Communication capabilities have gone a long way since pigeons and messengers. The internet now provides ample opportunity to communicate freely, this includes forums and social networks. Communicate freely is not the type of thought exchange process allowed for politicians and diplomats. However, it seems that Twitter (for some reason) is the most favourable social network among politicians (http://bnn-news.com/world-leaders-love-twitter-94100)
Strange. Does it really allow high ranking politicians to express short, concise opinions that freely (as far as they claim that is)?
It seems as though anything a politician says explodes one way or another. Social networks allow for fast distribution of information, be it political or otherwise.
