Report: U.S. created a Cuban Twitter to overthrow government

By Jose Pagliery

The U.S. government secretly created a Twitter-like social media service to subvert Cuba's communist government, according to an investigative report by the Associated Press.

The AP says U.S. government officials developed an app called ZunZuneo - named after the chirping sound of a hummingbird - to cause social unrest.

U.S. efforts to undermine the Castro regime in Havana are nothing new. There was a poison cigar, an exploding seashell, lethal pills and a fungus-ridden diving suit. But cooking up a tech startup with - literally - revolutionary intentions? That's something else.

To get around Cuba's iron grip control on technology and outside influence via the Internet, ZunZuneo was a low-tech version of Twitter fed by cell phone text messages, the AP reported.

They are split into five groups (Diving, Pilot, Efficiency, Ladies, Executive) which we'll take a closer take a look at below. One of Citizen Nighthawk most current designs is the Argonautic Bronze TT, which is restricted to just 300 items. The production of this watch follows the success of the previous year's Citizen Nighthawk bronze model, which sold out quickly.
