"Dear Chinese Government…" (Twitter CEO Reacts After Chinese Activist Is Sent To Labour Camp For Tweet)

Twitter CEO Dick Costolo (@dickc) responds to the disturbing news that the Chinese government sentenced ‘activist’ Cheng Jianping to one year of ‘Re-education Through Labour’ on Monday for “disturbing social order”, after she retweeted a satirical suggestion (from her boyfriend) on October 17 that the Japanese Pavilion at the Shanghai Expo be attacked.
