Venezuela’s Maduro Rolls Out Twitter Account -- Chávez Keeps His

CARACAS – Just like President Hugo Chávez did a few years ago, Venezuela’s acting President Nicolás Maduro opened a Twitter account on Sunday afternoon in a bid to stay in touch with the Revolution’s supporters, private-run TV station Globovisión reported.

Maduro, whose official account @NicolasMaduro has gained over 155,000 followers so far, first wrote around 12:30 p.m. Venezuelan time: “Today we’ve got ourselves a country. Long live Bolívar! Long live Chávez!” He wrote afterwards that: “Here I am fulfilling the Commander’s calling, committing to him as we all will.”

Meanwhile, Aragua state Governor Tareck El Aissami announced on Sunday that the official Twitter account of Hugo Chávez will remain active and will be used to spread out the ideas and thoughts of the popular leftist leader who died March 5. The account has 4,221,912 users to date and was last used by President Chávez on February 18, the day Chavez arrived in Venezuela from Cuba to continue his cancer treatment at the Dr. Carlos Árvelo Military Hospital in Caracas.

Maduro is running for president against Opposition hopeful Miranda state Governor Henrique Capriles Radonski in an election to be held on April 14. Maduro has repeatedly said he expects to win the election with over 10 million votes.
