Today I saw a new follower on my Twitter account. In her “profile” column, she puts such descriptions: “I was questioned [by police] for jumping over the Great Firewall. I had to write a guarantee statement. My [Twitter] account was delete. How resentful! What could I do? Had to “reincarnate” [by creating this new account]!”
People in the free world can hardly imagine what lies behind these few lines. How many horrible things have happened to her? How much had she suffered during this process? And how strong is her desires to get to the free world, even if it is just in the virtual world?
Well, we can say this is also something with “”Chinese characteristics”. And shame on Twitter to block people like this, who have suffered and sacrificed so much just for owning a Twitter account!
I hope all this will become history soon, and all people in China can also enjoy freedom like us.
