Last month we wrote this about Hugo Chavez joining Twitter:

This outta get real stupid, real quick.

Apparently it has. [seriously?]

Chavez says, he has been overwhelmed by nearly 54,000 messages from supporters, critics and people writing to ask for help with a problem or lodge a complaint. On Thursday, he announced that a new team of 200 aides would help him manage the stream.

200 aides.  If you’re counting at home, that’s more people than characters to tweet with.
