(Newser) – Geez, even the most bellicose dictators sound humdrum on Twitter. After Venezuela's Hugo Chavez announced he was starting his own feed, the world awaited his first twitterance. Here it is, with translation courtesy of the BBC. "Hey how's it going? I appeared like I said I would: at midnight. I'm off to Brazil. And very happy to work for Venezuela. We will be victorious!!"
