    Correa’s critics disadvantaged online, especially on Twitter

    Long before other world leaders took to Twitter, Ecuadoran President Rafael Correa was using social media and other digital tools to air grievances and abuse his adversaries. After joining Twitter in July 2011 (with a tweet about a boring meeting), Correa quickly joined forces with another social media-savvy regional leader, Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez. Both presidents used Twitter to speak directly to their supporters, criticize their opponents, and tout their accomplishments.
