U.S. Secretly Built “Cuban Twitter” to Cause Unrest: Report

The U.S. government was behind the creation of a "Cuban Twitter" communications network made to undermine the communist government in Cuba, built with secret shell companies and financed through foreign banks, according to The Associated Press. For over 2 years, the project drew tens of thousands of subscribers who sought to evade Cuba's stranglehold on the Internet via a primitive social media platform. It is unclear whether the scheme was legal under U.S. law, which requires written authorization of covert action by the president and congressional notification.
