Today is a day for Canadians to be proud as @Canada joined Twitter. In just 10 hours and only 7 tweets there’s been over 50,000 patriotic followers.

The account is run by the Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development department of the Canadian government.

With this new account, they plan to “act as a shop window for everything that makes Canada the best country in the world”. And of course, @Canada is Twitter verified as per the blue checkmark. What about the francophones? Well there’s also @AuCanada

Be proud because today is a good day to be Canadian and show your pride!
