Twitter lands them in the slammer

It had to happen.

The Venezuelan government has just detained two people for things they wrote on their Twitter boards.

One of them is Luis Acosta Oxford. His twitter name is @leaoxford. What ticked the government off was his tweet saying Venezuelan bank Banesco was not healthy. I cannot find the twitter account of Carmen Nares, the other person detained.

I guess Venezuela’s police have too much time on their hands.
