Peru: Toledo confirms his run for President 2011

You saw it here first (ok...maybe second) at 11:47am EST.

Hot off the Twitterpress, Ex-Prez Alejandro Toledo has just shocked and surprised absolutely nobody by confirming his candidacy for President of Peru in 2011. Here's the linko.

UPDATE: Out of academic interest, a bit of oldmedia-vs-newmedia grist. Peru's two biggest newspapers, La Republica and El Comercio, "broke" the same story at 11:58am and 11:59am respectively, which could have been read on umpteen Peru Spanish language blogs by that time. Just sayin'.
