  1. Jailed Former Peruvian President Dodges Ban with Twitter

    Former Peruvian president Alberto Fujimori, jailed for corruption and for approving government death squads, is banned from giving interviews or making public statements. But he’s found a loophole: social media. He has no access to computers, but that hasn’t stopped him from using third-party messengers to deliver his online message to the world. He delivers his thoughts via pay phone to supporters, and he’s not shy about criticizing the nation’s current leadership to more than 10,000 followers (and counting). And there appears to be little the government can do to intervene.
