Beyond the DMZ: Tweeting from North Korea

Amidst the latest round of Pyongyang saber rattling – the DPRK has declared yet again that the 1953 armistice is now null snd voidd – CNN has an article about the recent advent of social media in North Korea.

Of course, this is not something that everyday citizens are able to talk to partake in, but rather something that visitors to the country are able to do.

Lest you think the article is just a bunch of gushing about how times are changing in North Korea, AP Pyongyang bureau chief Jean Lee, who has gotten much criticism from the likes of Joshua at One Free Korea, does come out and say that she would like to see more underground, uncontrolled activities on North Korea's intranet.


  1. So much secrecy enshrouding North Korea, I'm jealous of anyone that has gotten the chance to see the real thing from the inside!

    Check out my budget travel blog soon :)

    1. I would like to check it out as well. I'm hoping to attach myself to a health care-oriented project in one of these upcoming summers.
