Via the BBC: Venezuela’s Chavez tweets post-surgery: ‘I’ll live!’
Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez has sent out messages from Cuba saying he is recovering well from an operation for a suspected recurrence of cancer.
Mr Chavez used the Twitter social network to tell officials and supporters he would "live and win" after surgery in Cuba on Monday to remove a lesion from his pelvic region.
There has been no official word on whether the lesion was cancerous.
Really, who could make up the story of the authoritarian tweeter who has to go to another country to get not one, but two serious surgeries, because he fears the political ramifications of having the surgery in his own country (lack of secrecy, etc.)?
In this tale of wonder the tweeter would also have a talk show and would get upset over photos that make him look like Mickey Mouse.
