Report: Hugo Chavez is joining Twitter

Posted: 10:04 AM ET

Of course celebrities like singer Britney Spears are on Twitter.

And it even seems expected at this point that Barack Obama, arguably the techiest president in U.S. history, would have a presence on the micro-blogging service.

But Hugo Chavez?

According to Bloomberg, the Venezuelan president - one of the most controversial world leaders– is planning to join Twitter.

Not only that. He wants to dominate it.

“Comandante Chavez is going to open his Twitter account soon to wage the battle online,” Diosdado Cabello, head of the country’s telecommunications regulator, said on state television, according to the news organization.

“I’m sure he’ll break records for numbers of followers.”

Chavez said in March that he plans to use the web to interact with critics, according to Sky News.

"I'm going to have my online trench from the palace to wage the battle. I'll provide information and even respond to my enemies," Chavez said, according to that news site.

TO ME AND THE WORLD HUGO CHAVEZ IS A SAVIOR OF THE POOREST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD.... HIS BEST WISH IS HAPPYNESS FOR HUMANITY. WITHOUT CHAVEZ AND SO MANY OTHERS LEADERS THE WORLD WOULD HAVE ALREADY ENDED.

POLITITIANS LIKE BARACK OBAMA AND AND SO MANY OTHERS TERRORISTS ..... THIS WORLD WOULD HAVE SIMPLY BLOWN OUT LIKE AN ATOMIC BOMB..........

HUMANITY DESERVE TO SURVIVE... BUT WE WILL NOT ..... BECAUSE LEADERS LIKE BUSH AND OBAMA STILL MANAGE THIS WORLD.
