I hope Twitter is keeping the money.

Funny that China/CCP block twitter inside China, but want to use it to shape external opinions.

What about Instagram and the 200 other social networks? Did they take the money too?

Is WeiBlow being used by Hong Kongers to provide their view of the protests?

Not surprised to hear China has taken a page from the 2016 Russian disinformation campaign, hoping to sway public opinion in Hong Kong and among Chinese living in Western countries.

Xi is going to have to reckon with a population that lived in democracy for 100 years, and doesn't want to live by Beijing rules. I was very cheered by yesterday's massive and peaceful umbrella protest.

Shame on China! Its very ironic that the Chinese gov is all against these demonstrations.... but .... this is exactly how they came to power!
