Ran Yunfei: “Domestic Microblogs Exist to Die in Battle”
[…] Twitter and domestic microblogs do not broadcast in parallel, but are more like a sealed lake that is always full of water (sealed-off Twitter) trickling into dried-up earth (domestic microblogs) to irrigate it. If you open a little trickle, there will be a furious flood, and it will soon provoke restriction, which will lead to the crack being blocked. Of course, if only very few people ‘trickle-irrigate’, the [dried-up] earth is certain to crack up, so it’s necessary for more people to use all sorts of ways to broadcast all kinds of truth onto domestic microblogs, and to use the ‘trickle-irrigation’ method to allow the truth to remain on domestic microblogs for longer. This way, we can finally make all sorts of lies spun by [the government] collapse in on themselves. […] In my opinion, it would be best if we could amass popularity of domestic microblogs, and if we can’t amass popularity, netizens can make use of the ‘micro-power’ of this trickle-irrigation, and continue to send out all kinds of information that will benefit the truthful broadcasting of information.
