The Twitter feed for the “First Secretary of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of Cuba and the President of the Council of Ministers of Cuba” was set up on 1 May 2011 when he presided “over the May Day parade in #SantiagodeCuba”. The tweets about Raúl Castro’s activities are in Spanish, culled from the Cuba Debate website which reports on the daily activities of the Cuban leadership. The account consistently mentions @CubaDebate but also @ReflexionFidel and @ChavezCandanga, Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez’s Twitter account.
