To Tweet or not to Tweet

Just posted an item in the SPJ International Journalism blog.

Seems a few people were wondering what will happen to the press corps that is following Pres. Obama to China when they run up against the Great Firewall of China and China’s regular attempts to keep Twitter and Facebook away from the masses.

Looks as if they got through.

One response to “To Tweet or not to Tweet

  1. That the Chinese government managed, or scripted, Barak Obama while not budging on the issues says something about the Chinese character that few outside of China realize. I’ve just posted on this at http://euandus3.wordpress.com/2009/11/18/china-stage-managing-barak-obama/, drawing on my visit to China.
