Bloggers participate in the first meeting about twitter social networking in Havana, Cuba, Friday July 1, 2011. A few dozen members of Cuba's small but growing Twitter community met for the first time Friday, connecting strange faces to familiar usernames and commiserating about woeful Internet access on an island with the second-worst connectivity rates in the world. The decades-old U.S. economic embargo has left Cuba without a hardwired connection to the rest of the world, and the island relies on slow, costly satellite service. Tweeters expressed hope Friday that an undersea fiber-optic cable to Venezuela that arrived here earlier this year and could go online this month will speed things up. (AP Photo/Javier Galeano) less
