Q: Is Twitter selling out? Will it gain popularity in China? Will you use it?

 

Twitter will censor tweets country by country

I don't know what part of China you are in HugAPanda, or if even you are in China at all, but in the part of China where I am located, twitter is firewalled out already.  Thus, I don't see how twitter could or might gain popularity here unless it were to become unfirewalled.

Then again, perhaps in other parts of the country it is accessible...

Yes, I think it is selling out. but if they want to expand here, its what they must do. however, weibo has the entire market already, so I doubt it would catch on much. so in the end, it wont change how the social media market here, and it will just make twitter look like a bunch of twatters.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
