Tweet of the Day

Today we share a Tweet which has been published from the province of Matanzas, Cuba by Sayli Navarro, daughter of former political prisoner Felix Navarro and independent journalist in her own right.  In this Tweet, Sayli sends out a message oh hope for Cuba:

[TRANSLATION]

@SayliNavarro: Some day, not too far, my #Cuba will be free.  Today, I feel so much pain upon seeing my island enslaved for so many years.  Let us rescue our rights

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.
