Earlier today, Fang Binxing (方滨兴), president of Beijing University of Posts and Telecommunications and the grand architect of the GFW, signed up on the Chinese microblog Sina Weibo, but not for long. The amount of vulgarities and curses that overwhelmed his page as soon as his account was opened forced him to delete his tweets just three hours later. Check out China Digital Times for a sample of comments that led him to swallow his own bitter pill. Fang’s fate reminds us of the microblogging misadventures of General Mao Xinyu (毛新宇), the grandson of Chairman Mao. With just one tweet on Dec 4, Mao managed to attract over 46,000 followers, but Sina editors eventually had to delete all the comments that inundated that tweet. He has not been heard from since that fateful day.
