1. On Wednesday, Argentinian President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner pissed off a lot of people by tweeting a racist comment about Chinese accents.
Over 1,000 people at the event... Are all of them from "La Cámpola" [an Argentine pro-government organization] and they only came here for the rice and oil?
Rice and oil were spelled in a way to poke fun at the Chinese accent.
2. She tried to pass it off as humor.
Sorry, you know what? All the excess of absurdity and ridiculousness can only be digested through humor. If not, this excess can be really, really toxic.
3. This isn't the first time Kirchner's Twitter has caused waves. Remember that time she broke her ankle and appeared in public in a wheelchair, but told everyone on Twitter she was able to walk?
And, you know what? I walked to all the meetings. Of course, with my boot on.
4. Or the time Kirchner tweeted a picture of herself next to a girl who didn't seem to be too happy about it.
When I showed up, with my usual kindness, I am welcomed by a beautiful kid wearing a red coat...
5. She also likes to use Twitter to hand out advice to journalists. Kirchner, also known as CFK, doesn't care if you're a guy or a girl.
Please, don't write headlines like 'A waterfall of CFK tweets'. Guys, please more creativity...sorry, not only guys, but also girls, as well.
6. She even tries to use Twitter to help journalists when she feels they haven't communicated ~exactly~ what she wanted.
... just in case you haven't read this in some newspaper or seen in a newscast...
7. She's very diplomatic.
A speculative attack about our currency is being amplified to the maximum by our local hedges. Especially by their favorite radio station: "Hedge Radio"
8. She expresses her opinions with, um, diplomacy and grace.
I wouldn't be funny – even with a jidahist photomontage – if the Middle East weren't a real tragedy.
9. She also reminds everyone that she is doing her job and it's not all a miracle.
All this is not a miracle and it's not good luck, we also didn't get it by chance. This is political will, a government's decision and state policy.
10. In case you were wondering, she proves to be an expert economist, although it takes her more than one tweet to explain it.
Here I am sending you different analysis about the issue where we can prove that the checking account earnings – retail and wholesale –
11. She gives you ALL the information you need.
You read it properly, didn't you? There is no restriction to the payment of tickets and touristic tours with currencies...
12. She keeps you updated with what her doctor is telling her.
Last night I was X-rayed and the traumatologist allowed me to travel. I am an obedient person... at least with the doctors.
13. And she comments on her agenda like it's no big deal.
OK, I gotta go to Rome to have lunch with @Pontifex_es
14. Her timeline is filled with motivational phrases.
We could use a little bit of pride and dignity.
You know what? Like Tanguito (an Argentine rock composer and singer) used to say, 'love is stronger'.
15. From time to time she'll throw out hard data that really makes you think.
I'd better stop. I know the Earth is round, and in Argentina it's even rounder.
16. She keeps her followers entertained with riddles.
If it has four legs, shakes its tail and says "Woof!"... what do you think it is?
17. Last year she shared her story of how she managed to quit smoking.
I lit off the last cigarette, after smoking one after one that day once an hour. Nobody believed that I actually could last a month without smoking. Sometimes, it was above all things during political meetings. On Dec. 31, 1988, at midnight, holding a glass of cider in my hand... Well, I wasn't so terrible after all (I couldn't stand the smell of these cigarettes), I would smoke two packages in a row... It struck me because it's similar to my story of a converted smoker. He would smoke three daily packages of Parisiennes a day.
18. Her mini-chronicles include pop culture.
... claiming Argentina. What are they? James Bond or Woody Allen movies? No. Much simpler and less creative.
19. She loves Game of Thrones and even has a favorite character.
Game of Thrones. My favorite character? The mother of the dragons. I am sure she will choose Robb Stark, or Jon Snow?
20. Her relationship with the late Venezuelan leader Hugo Chavez was pure love <3
Commander Chávez, companion and friend, has became part of history now. Men like Chávez don't die, they are cultivated land.
21. She is also a dog lover. Here she is in a photo next to Evita and her dog.
Last picture of the year. I saw online a beautiful photo of Evita with a pet that looked like Lolita's mom or grandmother.
22. She even comments on what other leaders do with their dogs.
No, of course... Obama opened his own Facebook account for his dog Bo, who is gorgeous (I'm talking about Bo)...
23. She really, really seems to like Bo.
He has 5,000 followers. The dog chooses pictures of when they are traveling in a car with a phrase "I travel inside". You don't believe me? Look at it.
Happy birthday, Bo :)
And if it's not enough to look at him in the park, in the middle of the oval hall or in the Facebook of the White House, he's celebrating his birthday.
24. This is Simon, her dog.
I have been wanting to show you how Simón looks like as a grown-up now. This photo was taken in Calafate.
"This is the dog that Hugo Chávez promised to give me as a gift. It's Venezuela's national dog," she said when the dog was introduced in a video when she came back from brain surgery.
