Even Cavemen Now Joining Twitter

I wonder if this semi-retarded troglodyte will be able to get anything coherent out in 140 characters or less. He's certainly not known for his brevity.
Hugo Chavez, the Venezuelan President, has announced that he will start using Twitter, the microblogging site which will test his ability to deliver a concise message.

Mr Chavez speaks to the nation for hours every Sunday on his radio and television program but on Twitter he will be limited to much shorter messages of just 140 characters each time.

His use of Twitter also marks a new tactic in his approach to the internet and social networking.

In January Mr Chavez said that using Twitter, the internet and text messaging to criticise his regime was "terrorism."

He has now decided to use the social networking tool for his own purposes.

"Comandante Chavez is going to open his Twitter account soon to wage the battle online," Diosdado Cabello, director of Venezuela's state-run telecommunications agency, said on Venezuelan television, according to Bloomberg News.

"I'm sure he'll break records for numbers of followers."
Uh, doubtful.

I give him a week until he shuts it down after being unmercifully taunted. Comrade Chavez doesn't like dissent.

And how confused will he be to discover Hugo Chavez is already on Twitter?
