Chavez gives house to his 3 millionth Twitter follower
If you thought it was boring to follow politicians on Twitter, here’s an inspiring example of how lucrative just one click can be. The Venezuelan president has granted a house to the lucky young lady who became the 3 millionth follower of his tweets.
Nineteen-year-old Natalia Valdivieso, who lives on Margarita Island in Venezuela, could hardly imagine her click to “follow” the chavezcandanga would turn into such a juicy affair.
On Wednesday a delegation led by a member of the ruling party visited Natalia to inform her that she will soon have a new house.
The girl seems to be luckier than Chavez’s 2 millionth Twitter follower, who only got a PC from the president in 2011.
Natalia said she loves Chavez and sends him salutary kisses so that he can regain his health. “He always inspired me and I adore his vigor,” the young lady announced.
The Venezuelan president was diagnosed with cancer in 2011. On Thursday a report was released by US journalist Dan Razer, who says Chavez, 57, has an aggressive cancer that has "entered the end stage."
The report quotes a “highly-respected source close to Chavez and who is in a position to know his medical condition” and, according to the source, Chavez is now not expected to live "more than a couple of months at most."
The Venezuelan leader has undergone three operations in less than a year, and received two sessions of radiation treatment. He says the latest surgery was successful, that he is recovering well and will be fit to win a new six-year term at an election in October.
