HAVANA (AP) — A U.S. diplomat has become a sort of tweeter-in-chief for the U.S. mission in Cuba, reaching out to some of Washington's most vocal critics on the island.
The U.S. Interests Section has long cultivated ties to dissident bloggers and tweeters. But the mission's deputy chief Conrad Tribble has been reaching out to the communist Twitteratti as well.
That's prompted alarm, wariness and a little bemusement among some who usually spend much of their efforts criticizing the U.S.
In the words of one pro-government blogger: "Imagine, the Interests Section meeting with revolutionary bloggers ... What the hell are we doing wrong?"
