Hugo Chavez Joins Twitter

Hugo Chavez/Twitter

"Hugo Chavez is starting to use Twitter... forcing a president who often talks for hours to sum up each thought in 140 characters or less..." - Jorge Rueda, the Associated Press, Wednesday, April 28, 2010

BolivarXXI Greetings, peoples of the world -- it is I, Hugo Chavez, Maximum Commander of the Bolivarian Revolution, generalissimo of the socialist movem

BolivarXXI Wait, only 140 characters? INCLUDING SPACES? You've got to be kidding me. I'm on the TV for days at a time, how can they expect me to

BolivarXXI They're not kidding about the 140 characters. This is an absurd violation of intellectual liberty and freedom of speech and I

BolivarXXI DAMNIT as the leader of a sovereign nation I think I'm entitled to more than 140 characters. I'm calling their offices in SF

BolivarXXI On hold

BolivarXXI The Yanquis won't give me more space, they say if they make an exception for me they have to do it for everyone yadda yadda

BolivarXXI What the hell is the point of this? I can harangue my people over the radio for 12 hours at a time, if I feel like it (and I do)

BolivarXXI Actually I'm getting the hang of it. Hey look, Kim Jong Il is on Twitter! And so is my good friend, President Mahmoud Ahmadi

BolivarXXI nejad of Iran. If we collude to raise the price of oil over Twitter, do you think OPEC will get angry? LOL

BolivarXXI YES, OPEC is angry. Didn't think they were on Twitter too. Mahmoud, just DM me about that uh price stuff ha ha

BolivarXXI Geez now the G7 is on my case. Everyone and their foreign minister is on this stupid site

BolivarXXI Everyone I was just joking about colluding, lighten up

BolivarXXI Adios, I'm out of here. If I wanted to subject myself to merciless surveillance I'd be on Facebook!
