Tweet of the Day

Today, the “Tweet” comes from former political prisoner and national coordinator of the Patriotic Union of Cuba, Jose Daniel Ferrer Garcia.  The dissident published a message from the current political prisoner Bismark Mustelier Galan who has been behind bars in the Aguadores Prison of Santiago de Cuba since April 1st, just for demanding that a minor be treated medically in a hospital, considering that the child was suffering from various ailments and was not being tended to.

[TRANSLATION] @jdanielferrer: Bismark Mustelier with his spirit high in the air, always exhorting his brothers from the opposition to continue firm in the struggle for freedom

In the vast majority of cases, Twitter is used freely and frequently throughout the world by all sorts of users.  It is a message which is instantaneously published on the internet (which is limited to 140 characters) and deals with any subject which the user wishes to discuss, whether it be social, entertainment, humor, science, politics, commentary, etc.  In Cuba, Twitter messages cost users 1 CUC (national currency) each and are only possible through phone text messages, unless the user has access to the internet (a rare Case in Cuba, considering the tight state censorship practiced over the web).  In many cases, friends who have joined in solidarity in the exterior of the island help these Twitter users to publish their messages.
