Mexico’s Ambassador to the United States, Arturo Sarukhan, in October became the first member of the D.C. diplomatic corps to have a personal Twitter account.

Sarukhan has 535 followers and follows 36 Twitter users, including several lawmakers and President Barack Obama's account, which is run by the Democratic National Committee. He tweets under the handle @arturo_sarukhan.

Like many lawmakers, some of the ambassador's tweets are real-time reports on his schedule. He tweeted today while on Capitol Hill:

Good series of meetings with US Reps Bilbray, Oberstar, Payne and Israel today on the Hill, deepening and widening US-Mexico relations

Amb. Sarukhan made waves last week with his Twitter account. He criticized Forbes magazine for its inclusion of a Mexican drug lord on its “World’s Most Powerful” list:

Sadly, Forbes insists in parading criminals and drug-traffickers as part of their annual "most powerful" list

The Los Angeles Times picked up on his tweet on Saturday in a story about Mexico's reaction to Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman's appearance on the Forbes list.
