North Korea says it has joined Twitter, YouTube

SEOUL, South Korea — North Korea appears to have ramped up its propaganda war against South Korea and the U.S. by turning to Twitter and YouTube — websites that most citizens of the reclusive communist country are banned from viewing.
The North's government-run Uriminzokkiri website posted an announcement last week saying it has a Twitter account and a YouTube channel.More than 80 videos have been uploaded since July to the global video-sharing site under the user name uriminzokkiri. The series of clips include condemnation of "warmongers" South Korea and the U.S. for blaming North Korea for the sinking of a South Korean warship in March.
In May, an international team of investigators found North Korea responsible for the sinking, which killed 46 South Korean sailors, but the North denies involvement.
