Who Knew The North Korean Regime Used Twitter?
The regime in Pyongyang does not like the Internet, since North Koreans can use it to watch YouTube videos of people eating all kinds of things besides roots and grass.
But at least one communist apparatchik has a Twitter account. And now a South Korean has been convicted of retweeting some of its content, violating the country's security law.
A bizarre state of affairs. There's no context for this in the news item, so it's unclear if the South Korean Twerp was mocking the tweet or actually attempting to disseminate propaganda. But really, should it matter?
Will any South Koreans be convinced to like Kim Jong Il more, or actually defect to the land that food forgot, because of some Twitter posts? This is one social media campaign that seems doomed to fail.
