NEW DELHI - A Chinese actress, Yao Chen, apparently has more microblog fans than American talk show queen Oprah Winfrey.
The “microblog queen” has become the first person with 5 million followers on China’s popular Twitter-like microblog service, reports Xinhua.
A statement from sina.com.cn, which runs the microblog service, crowned Yao “microblog queen,” saying Chen attracts netizens because she expresses her true feelings on her microblog, posting entries like text messages sent between old friends.
Chen is the first non-Twitter microblogger in the world’s top ten microbloggers, according to asiadigitalmpa.com, the Sina statement said. (ANI)
