CHINA — According to the failing New York Times, Chinese police have started questioning and detaining an increasing number of Twitter users even though the service is blocked in China and almost no one uses it.
Apparently the world's worst INTRANET isn't quite restrictive enough, so Xi Jinping and his goons are cracking down even more.
Chinese Twitter users are increasingly getting harassed by annoying Chinese police in painfully long and boring interrogation where typical CCP threats are made to them and their families.
Po po usually start by demanding you delete certain tweets, which express things like an opinion. Other times to thought police just ask you to delete your entire account.
And if you refuse? Well, then they just get their government hackers to access your account and delete it for you. Wow—how thoughtful of the regime.
In other instances, Twitter users have actually been chained to things in the interrogation rooms while authorities show them printouts of their no no tweets.
China has around 800 million INTRANET users, not internet users. According to a study by the Hertie School of Governance in Germany, only 0.4 percent or around 3.2 million Chinese have Twitter access.
However, while Chinese citizens are banned from using Twitter, Communist Party affiliated propaganda outlets like the People's Daily and Xinhua news agency use the social media service regularly to help spread their b.s. worldwide.
Ah...hypocrisy, one of China's oldest and tastiest dishes.
