So, Twitter is definitely a sensitive subject in China.
As we reported in November 2010, a Chinese bride was arrested – on her wedding day – because of something she retweeted. The Chinese authorities sentenced her to one year of hard labor to “re-educate” her.
Twitter is, in fact, completely banned in the country, as are Facebook, Google+ and YouTube (and many more).
But that doesn’t mean the people of China aren’t still very active on social media.
