Weibo More Dominant In China Than Twitter In The West
According to Hitwise, Sina Microblog (or Sina Weibo) accounted for 1 in every 158 Internet visits in China for April 2011. This makes China one of the most voracious micro-blogging nations worldwide, with a greater market share of visits going to microblogging sites in China than in the UK, US, France, Canada, Australia or India. With the knowledge that Sina Weibo have been rolling out new features such as an instant messaging service, and an English UI iPhone app, you should be less surprised by this news. It’s now seeming even more likely that Weibo could surpass Twitter by the end of this year.
