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.

There are very a lot of details prefer that to consider. This is a wonderful denote start up. I supply the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are actually questions just like the one you raise up in which the most essential factor will probably be doing work in honest excellent faith. I don?t determine if best practices have emerged about such thinggs as that, but Almost certainly that your chosen job is clearly referred to as a good game.

I have a blogger blog with a custom domain set up. I want to export it to a hosted wordpress blog. Some of my posts have good ranks with google and I don't want to mess that up. My new WP blog will be the .net of my custom blogger domain so the permalinks will technically change if I import the old posts...any ideas how to get around this?.   February 17th, 2021 1:12 pm ET
