Cuba Denounces use of Clubhouse App to Organize Counterrevolution

Foreign Minister of Cuba, Bruno Rodriguez, is denouncing the use of Clubhouse to organize the counterrevolution in Cuba. Rodriguez said the social networking app, which was first launched exclusively in the Apple App Store, has been utilized by political operators in the United States to send instructions for destabilization plans.

The Minister tweeted, “I denounce that the app @Clubhouse, from that platform, is being used to organize the counterrevolution and that in this way receives instructions from political operators who are in the United States.” The Foreign Minister also tweeted at the White House, reminding the Biden administration that the storming of the Capitol in January 2021 was the result of online planning.

Clubhouse, an invite-only audio chat social networking platform, has a wide variety of groups and virtual rooms to dialogue on various topics, talk shows, music, contacts, appointments, presentations, political discussions and more.

The application was launched in 2020 by the company Alpha Exploration and in December 2020 it was valued at almost 100 million dollars.

However, a recent scandal reported the leak of 3.8 billion phone numbers of the application from the so-called dark web. According to press reports, the leak affected people without a Clubhouse profile as the app has users synchronizing their contacts.
