    I wonder the distribution of CIA, HK, Taiwan and FLG accounts


    From reddit:

    I'm surprised the CCP sucks so much at social media manipulation.

    If mainland Chinese used automation it would've been outed very quickly by media. Not using it is the smart thing to do.

    It’s getting out of control tho, you see a bunch of new reddit accounts that iust posts the same anti-China reddit front page material over and over for karma.

    It pays to take the high road at the same time as opening up, pushing for the truth to come out, and it doesn't hurt to let (or even sometimes help) liars trip over their own lies. Coverage of the 2009 Xinjiang riots were a good precedent.

    Also Chinese are accused of 50-cent trolls and bots regardless of the reality. Just like the accusations of the $500 billion/year IP theft, you might as well just do if it they believe you're doing it anyways.

    I don't think that's the mature approach to dealing with accusations.

    Twitter has apologized for censoring anti China criticism. So whatever algorithm they were using was indiscriminate meaning not rigged for US propaganda purposes. Which also tells you how many lies are out on the anti-China side.

    LOL!

    Twitter is now forced to tolerate spam bots on their social media network as long as they post anti-China messages.

    Social Media is just pathetic.
