April Fool’s Joke Cuts Deep for China Internet

One of the Chinese Internet’s most popular microbloggers, former Google China chief Kai-fu Lee, became the perpetrator of one of the country’s most pointed April Fool’s jokes on Monday morning.

In a post on Twitter-like microblogging service Sina Weibo, Mr. Lee announced to his 35 million followers that Facebook FB -0.39%and Twitter – both long blocked by the Internet censorship system commonly known as China’s Great Firewall – had suddenly become available.

A screenshot shows the April Fool’s prank Kai-fu Lee posted on Sina Weibo.“You can now get on Facebook and Twitter in China! No need to jump over the wall! The image below will tell you how!” he wrote.

Attached to the post was a thumbnail image showing the Facebook and Twitter logos with a small line of text underneath. Users who clicked the image to expand it quickly discovered they’d been duped:“I’m in Tapei I’m in Taipei I’m in Taipei,” the text read.“Happy April Fool’s Day!”

A Taiwanese citizen, Mr. Lee enjoys a reputation for credibility on the Chinese Internet, thanks in part to his frank and sometimes irreverent takes on everything from China’s struggle to innovate to censors’ more extreme efforts to control conversation online. Last month, his Sina Weibo account was suspended for three days after he posted comments critical of state-run search engine Jike – an episode that only served to bolster his status in the eyes of many Chinese microbloggers.

That background helps explain how his prank post, which had been reposted nearly 30,000 times by early Monday evening, sucked in so many.

Among the more than 10,000 comments the post drew, plenty were angry.

“You shouldn’t be so unkind,” wrote one Sina Weibo user.

“hate you!” another wrote in English.

Twitter was shoved outside the Great Firewall in June 2009 with Facebook following a few weeks later. Neither had built up a large Chinese user base before being blocked, though both are now the subject of widespread curiosity among Chinese Internet users without the means to jump over the wall.

“I really want to understand the outside world. I really want to hear different voices,” was the response to Mr. Lee’s prank from one plaintive microblogger.

Not all were upset. A few with the technology to access the outside Internet even joined Mr. Lee in gloating.

“Of course you can get on!” wrote one.“PS: I work at a foreign company. I work at a foreign company. I work at a foreign company…”

Still others decided to go with a semantic response, taking advantage of Beijing’s insistence that Taiwan is part of China rather than an independent country.

“Teacher Lee is being naughty and breaking the rules, speaking truth on April Fool’s Day. Taiwan is a part of China. If you can get on Facebook and Twitter in Taiwan, that means these two things are available in China,” wrote a Sina Weibo users posting under the handle sadychen.

“I hope Taiwan recaptures the mainland sooner rather than later,” said another.

Yes, the Chinese Communist Party keeps the Chinese people in ignorance and feeds them with lies, so the truth is "naughty" for the infantile mainlanders who must understand that CCP lies are for them, truth is for free foreigners.

How HUMILIATING for China!

THIS IS NO APRIL FOOL

This HOW MEDIA WORKS IN CANADA!

Question 1: Why is CANADA creating such harmful pathogens that could infect humans and livestock?

Question 2: IS SARS and Bird Flu North America originated?
This confirmed our suspicions about all these SARS virus and Birdflu as being FOREIGN as part of the WESTERN BIOLOGICAL WARFARE but I am surprised CANADA that boasts about PEACE is involved in such dangerous production.

Question 3: Who are they exporting to?
The crazy FLG supporters or the TERRORIST organisation with intend to kill ordinary people!

Question 4: Why are the people in the WEST so WICKED?

Should be:
CANADA secretly manufacturing WEAPON OF MASS DESTRUCTION and now it is STOLEN! HOW MANY PEOPLE WILL DIED BECAUSE CANADA GOVERNMENT ENDORSE SUCH BIOLOGICAL WEAPON PROGRAM!

4 April 2013

OTTAWA (April 4, 2013): Canadian federal police on Wednesday charged two former government scientists with allegedly trafficking in dangerous and highly contagious germs.

Klaus Nielsen and Wei Ling Yu, former researchers at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA), are accused of attempting to export harmful pathogens, that could infect humans and livestock, to China.

Nielsen was apprehended as he was heading to the Ottawa airport last October with 17 vials of live brucella bacteria, which can cause infections of bovine reproductive organs, joints and mammary glands, as well as infertility.

It mostly affects cattle, deer and horses, but can also be passed on to humans and cause flu-like symptoms. There is no vaccine and the only way to control its spread is to cull animals suspected of being infected.

Nielsen was reportedly praised in 2006 for helping to develop a quick test for detecting brucellosis in cattle.

The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said he and Yu were allegedly making "unlawful efforts to commercialise (the) intellectual property belonging to the CFIA and a private commercial partner".

US company Diachemix currently manufactures and licenses the test.
