Take Your Twitter Efforts to the Next Level
We recently shared some insight into the Chinese social media landscape, which consists of 513 million Internet users and 84% of those users contributing to social networks.
That’s the highest rate in the entire world.
With Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and YouTube banned in China, Chinese social media users are logging onto Sina Weibo (China’s Twitter), Renren (China’s Facebook), Tencent Weibo (China’s Tumblr) and Tudou (China’s YouTube) instead. And doing so with incredible quantity.
Sina Weibo has about 300 million users, with Renren at 200 million, Tencent Weibo at 425 million, and Tudou at an amazing 431 million users.

• Adele quit Twitter in November after news broke that the singer had given birth, and Twitter trolls started bombarding the site with disgusting insults.
Here’s one for the “ridiculous” category: Britney Spears just got a new dog… and a Twitter account for it.
She adopted a pupppy, Hannah, then tweeted, “I want you all to meet my new little baby girl @hannahspears.”
Meet her for yourself via her Twitter account, which has the tagline “I’m Britney’s B***h.”
Celebrities are Twitter superstars. Eight of the top ten most-followed users are celebs, accounting for tens of millions of followers.
And these famous faces are banding together to help solve some of the world’s problems, using their 140-character influence.
