Just when you thought that the WomenCrossDMZ march couldn’t get any more unpleasant, it became an advert for Twitter.
Colleen Baik, who was a senior designer for Twitter until recently, has been using the march to promote Twitter’s video streaming service, Periscope.
But wait, it gets better. I pointed out on Twitter that this appeared a tad cynical:
It took roughly a minute and a half for me to get blocked. On Pyongyang internet speeds, that’s an impressive reaction time indeed. Seems like the peace activists really *have* been learning from North Korea.
Ironically, the WSJ is currently reporting Baik’s use of Periscope in Pyongyang as a ‘challenge for North Korea’s information control’.
