Personality information can be used as a basis for public assessment of the leaders in a government. In obtaining it is required the existence of a system of personality prediction to bridge between social media with a person's personality. The feature is obtained from the extraction method Linguistic Inquiry and Word Count (LIWC) is a text analysis program that calculates a word in psychological category into percentage value. The purpose of this study is to make a personality prediction system based on information from social media Twitter. Twitter's social media was chosen because of its text-shaped data, so it fits in with this paper using the word analysis program. The outcomes of this study show that 47% of 13 politician’s parties tend to have depressed meaning, lack of confidence and disappointed that influence to their emotion. It was also found that party’s communication system generally allowed their politicians to give statements freely to the social media, which is 62% of politicians stick out negative emotion on public. These factors were reducing the public trust as citizenry’s representatives.
