All A Twitter: Chavez Hires 200 People To Tweet For Him

Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has hired 200 people to help him tweet as part of his account “chavezcandanga,” which has more than 237,000 followers. He has much to tweet about as inflation has now reached 30 percent in the country, which Chavez blames on the “bourgeoisie.”

Chavez’s twitter account is now slightly larger than his rival Globovision, the only critical TV channel remaining in the country after Chavez’s crackdown on journalists and free speech.

The 30.4 percent inflation rate is now the highest in Latin America and, in his signature style, Chavez is now blaming the hidden hand of the United States and the wealthy and punishing no punitive measures: “We need to stop this right now. The bourgeoisie do not listen to appeals to their conscience. Let’s act with a firm hand.” Totalitarian tweets in 140 characters or less.

  1. I was suggested this website by way of my cousin. I am not positive whether or not this put up is written by way of him as nobody else understand such specified about my problem. You’re amazing! Thanks!

  2. And I’d likely take your advice more frequently than that.

    I’d just fire you every February 29th. ๐Ÿ˜€ Realize that does not mean you’d need to clean out your desk. Getting out of my line of sight for an hour or so might be a good idea, but no actual firing would be involved.

  3. lol

    Now there’s an idea that’s ahead of its time, B. I’m not sure the electorate would know what to do with me either. I will stipulate my complexion and dress are color appropriate to be a Green Party candidate so branding would be a breeze from the graphics end but in honesty I would have to run independent. If the GP wanted to endorse me as an independent, they are the only party out there I wouldn’t show the door automatically.

    “Interesting” as the adjective applied to the debates would probably be a subjective selection. It is my sincere hope that after about half an hour the guys at the other podiums would be incapable of rationally selecting modifiers because they would be sputtering, apoplectic from frustration, and maybe even crapping their pants a little at the prospect of what the press was going to do to them in the aftermath. Maybe even a “pants check” on live television. ๐Ÿ˜€ Brings a big ol’ smile to my face.

    You would make an excellent staffer and if I had the proclivity to run for office, I’d definably require someone like you to have counterweight in the group dynamic of the staff. I’m with Lincoln. If one is surrounded by yes men, one may always get an answer one wants, but one won’t always get the answer one needs. Plus your tenacity is battle-tested. That’s a strong selling point in counterweights.

  4. Buddha:

    why dont you run? You probably still have time to enter as an independent. If you won I could work as a staffer to give you the other side of the argument, you might even take my advice once in awhile ๐Ÿ™‚ Every February 29.

    The debates would certainly be interesting. Neither the dems nor the repubs would know what to do with you.

  5. Byron,

    “We really do deserve the politicians we elect.”

    Really? When our choices are between shit and crap?

    “When a people donโ€™t think and want to be taken care of โ€œweโ€ get the government they deserve.”

    Then you educate as many of the ignorant “they” as possible as to their rights and duties and that why giving their rights away to anyone let alone a politician is not only intellectually lazy but probably as unpatriotic an act an American can commit next to treason.

    You don’t have to educate and/or change all the minds.

    Just enough.
