Background. The research is topical due to a need for studying a new phenomenon in media linguistics – a political and administrative network media discourse. The main objective of the work is to identify the narrativity in texts of publications of Twitter network users.
Materials and methods. To achieve the objective the authors studied so-called tweets (records in Twitter) by heads of some regions of Russia. The main method of scientific judgment of the problem delivered in this study was the discourse analysis – one of the most popular methods of researching language phenomena and processes at the present time.
Results. The aithors considered trends to dramatize political and administrative network media communication in the aspect of various modern approaches to the concept of narrativity. During the analysis it was determined that tweets from the political and administrative segment of Internet communication can be considered as narratives, and that the narrativity should be considered as one of the key characteristics of the network political and administrative media discourse.
Conclusions. The authors come to a conclusion that the narrativity as a stable characteristic of texts of the political and administrative network media discourse is an important means of organization of the information picture of the world in the political and administrative segment of Internet media in the form of the world of stories,  which is created by an author and implemented in his/her blogging and microblogging texts.
