MEDDLING: US Created "Twitter" Account to Spread Propaganda Inside Cuba

An Associated Press report says the U.S. government secretly financed a social network in Cuba in an effort to stir political unrest and undermine the country's communist government.

The program evaded Cuba's Internet restrictions by creating a so-called "Cuban Twitter" text-messaging service that could be used to organize political demonstrations.

The network reportedly drew in tens of thousands of subscribers who were unaware it was backed by the U.S. government.

The AP says details uncovered by its reporters appear to contradict the U.S. Agency for International Development's longstanding claims it does not conduct covert actions.
