Role of Weibo in the accident in Wenzhou


People said media is heading to a new generation. We used to read newspaper but we just need a Iphone or Ipad now. Beside Facebook, there is a new medium called Weibo which launched in 2009. Qian Gang, who is the writer of ‘The earthquake of Tanshan’ , said Weibo is a gift from God.


In the accident of Wenzhou high-speed train crash, Weibo has played an important role. Mainland media are under a very strict limitation in reporting and limitation. Take the accident as an example, the government only let the media report the official information but no interview. However, after seven days, there is an explosion of news reporting the story of this accident until the government prohibit to do so.

At this time, Weibo provided a platform for media to update the news and the sensitive content to the internet so that people can know what’s happen immediately. It help to push the media into the next generation. There will be more freedom of press when Weibo become popular. The communication no longer single way. Qian also hope there are more people using this platform to say and fight for people.
