Hugo Chavez: From Twitter to Blogging

It really wasn’t that long ago, that Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez would have turned his nose up even at the sheer mention of social networking and sites such as Twitter. In fact, at one point he even called the popular microblogging site Twitter a “tool of terror.”

But according to a recent mashable.com article by Brenna Ehrlich, it’s a totally different story now, and he has actually become quite the social media maven. He has not only given in and joined Twitter now, but it also appears that he has his very own blog.

However, before you try adding the President’s blog to your RSS in anticipation of getting some juicy gossip or amusing commentary, you might want to think again. The President’s site basically contains news about meetings, as well as speeches, videos and photos.

According to the AP, the president is said to have launched his website and accompanying blog mainly as a way to combat the untruths, that he claims people are spreading about him online. What do you guys think about Chavez’s move forward into social media?
