In this article, we aim to contribute to the literature on political communication on social media in the context of the European Union (EU). By analysing Twitter connections of the Members of European Parliament (MEPs) elected to the European Parliament (EP) in 2019, we aim to identify relational patterns of MEPs at the individual and party group level. The results of a social network analysis confirm the assumption that MEPs have stronger connections within political groups.
