If there’s one thing that we at Shanghaiist would like to thank the Net Nanny for, it’s that she’s totally reunited Chinese microbloggers with the one big happy family that is Twitter again. You see, previously, everyone was distributed across a plethora of local microblogging services, but now with the demise of the two kingpins of the Chinese twitter clone world, Fanfou and Jiwai, everyone’s just decided to collectively show the GFW their middle finger by signing up for a damn VPN and rejoining the conversation on Twitter. Now Chinese microbloggers and their foreign counterparts are finally talking directly to each other, while news and stories and translations of anything remotely China-related are spreading faster than you can say H1N1! So, from the bottom of our hearts, thank you Net Nanny!
