Sheikh Mohammed Continues Technological Advance with Twitpic

Tech Leader
His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum is a leader in the use of technology to dialogue with his constituency and with people around the world.

Mo Mentum
Known in the Emirates and the Arab world as the Twittering Facebooking Sheikh, the ruler of Dubai gained so many Facebook friends that he had to switch to a public page.

Communicating in Pics
Not content with tweeting texts by way of Tweetdeck, Sheikh Mohammed (Twitter name: HHShkMohd) has now adopted the application Twitpic to send out photos (pictured).

His Facebook page is furnished with some delightful pictures, his personal web site is awash with videos and as one of the few world leaders who is also a poet, His Highness has a keen eye for the visual.
