Park Jung-geun is a 23-year-old photographer arrested for tweeting about North Korea, according to the New York Times. Park claims that his tweets, which were re-posted from the North Korean government site Uriminzokkiri.com to his Twitter account, were intended sarcastically. Prosecutors claim that the tweets "served as a tool to spread North Korean propaganda." If convicted, Park could serve up to seven years in prison.
Park's supporters are using an image that he created to serve as their avatars, and his political party has started an online petition (in Korean).
