Venezuela: Hugo Chávez's Daughter Stirs up Social Networks

With the hashtag #Rosinesing [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 that prevent Venezuelans from accessing foreign currencies. Lechuga Verde [es] posts the original photo and numerous, creative versions made by various netizens.
