What's on Weibo
While Twitter and Facebook are flooded with posts about Trump, it is the Chinese New Year that has been the central theme on Weibo over the past week. Last Friday’s CCTV New Year’s Gala became the most-discussed topic of the month. We did a live blog and have compiled an overview with the best and the worst moments of the show.
Nothing about Trump? Well, alright then. Trump seems to cause some confusion on Chinese social media, and it is not because of his recent policies, but because of his Chinese name. Trump is known under two different names in China. We explain why Trump has two different names and which is the best one to use. 
Happy Chinese New Year to you all, and please also stay tuned for the latest trends on Chinese social media through our Twitter or Facebook page
Warm Regards,
