Venezuela: Hugo Chávez's Daughter Stirs up Social Networks

Categories: Latin America, Venezuela, Citizen Media, Economics & Business, Politics

With the hashtag #Rosinesing [1] [es] you can follow the reactions to a controversial photograph that President Hugo Chavez's daughter published on Twitter where she is using a wad of US dollars as a fan. Many comments reflect the outrage of those who must go through lengthy and cumbersome procedures to get dollars since the 2003 exchange controls [2]that prevent Venezuelans from accessing foreign currencies. Lechuga Verde [3] [es] posts the original photo and numerous, creative versions made by various netizens.
