When invited to post thoughts about “which walls still have to come down to make our world a better place!” on a website dedicated to celebrating the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Chinese twitterers replied en mass. In fact, looking on the site right now, it seems that there’s barely anyone else besides Chinese twitterers commenting on how much they hate the GFW.
China Digital Times has translated some of the Twitters. Our favorite ones:
@nathanyangf RT @scavin: RT @dupola: RT: @wangpei: #fotw ”On the day the Great Firewall falls, please do not forget to tell me when you visit my grave.”
@Riverscn RT @leftry I read one sentence in some composition anthology when I was a kid, which says, “When a wall is torn down, it becomes a bridge.” Let’s use this to encourage each other. #fotw #gfw
