Summary To the annals of American subterfuge in Fidel and Raul Castro’s Cuba, The Associated Press revealed a new and astonishing case: the curious story of a fake “Cuban Twitter.” The idea was to create a cellphone text messaging service to provoke unrest and undermine Cuba’s communist government. It was hatched in 2010 by the U.S. Agency for International Development, an agency best known for distributing billions of dollars in humanitarian aid. This package not only details the "Cuban Twitter" program, but describes other covert operations run out of USAID over the past year.
