Diplomats are increasingly turning to Twitter to engage with people
around the world and Thursday was no different. Except that the diplomat
the social media platform featured in a live question-and-answer
session hails from a country with extremely low Internet access and
scant press freedom.
José Ramón Cabañas, Cuba’s ambassador to the U.S. in Washington, spent
about an hour answering questions via his verified account, from which
he frequently tweets.
He weighed in, in English and Spanish, on the significance of President
Barack Obama’s March visit to the island, diplomatic contacts and
priorities between the two countries, whether Cuba’s president Raúl
Castro would make a trip of his own to Washington and his taste in
music, among other topics.
