CUBA: Raul Castro's Daughter In Twitter Fight With Dissident Sanchez.


       Raul Castro's daughter...Mariela Castro, 49 (above)...called noted Cuban blogger Yoani Sanchez and other dissidents “despicable parasites” in a recent Twitter exchange.
       It is believed to be the first internet 'fight' on the island...with Mariela the first Castro to tweet.
       Sanchez (above) writes the widely read La Habana-based “Generation Y” blog...but is barely known on the island...except to the secret police...because internet access there is still primitive and expensive.
       Sanchez welcomed Castro to the “plurality of Twitter” where “no one can shut me up, deny me permission to travel or block entrance.”
