With the hashtag #AA24, we’ll take you behind the scenes of the German Federal Foreign Office.


From noon on 17 October to noon on 18 October (Central European Time), you can follow 24 hours in the life of the Federal Foreign Office on Twitter. With the hashtag #AA24, we’ll share a stream of tweets via our account at twitter.com/auswaertigesamt that will give you insight into a regular day’s work at our 220 missions abroad around the world, as well as at our headquarters in Berlin. This will include the visa section in Manila, a classroom in Minsk and the desk of the German Ambassador in Washington, DC. Our tweets, images and videos will take you around the world to places where foreign policy work is done every day.
