North Korea Twitter and Youtube pages

With the news that North Korea is on the verge of essentially electing a new eternal leader a couple interesting web pages came to my attention:

Firstly the twitter page. It's all in Korean unfortunately but a Babelfish translation usually gets a rough idea of what they're talking about.

Secondly of much more interest in North Korea's official Youtube page:

Now 99.9999% of North Korea doesn't have internet access so one wonders what the point of all of it is. According the BBC however it's more than likely that it solely exists for winding up and pissing off South Korea.

A little unrelated but here's a video of thousands of people etc in complete tears after the death of Kim il-Sung. It's rather amazing because the emotions are more than likely genuine.
