1. Chinese reddit: like normal reddit, except it's hard to see through the smog in r/pics.

It recently came to light that the US government was covertly funding the development of a Twitter-like microblogging service for Cuba called ZunZuneo, which is what Cubans call the tweeting sound a hummingbird makes. The hope, apparently, was that the residents of the Communist island nation would grow to love ZunZuneo for all the fun reasons, like live-ZunZuneoing the Cuban Academy Awards and stuff, and then the US could start to subtly encourage them to use it to organize for revolution. Because organizing revolutions in other places always works out great for the US.
