The rumor has been circulated in Chinese microblogging space: Jack Dorsey, the creator, cofounder and chairman of Twitter will be visiting China (Shanghai) in May. It says the visit has been confirmed, but the purpose of this trip is not clear so far.

Facebook is recently reported to sign the partnership with Baidu to bring the blocked world No.1 social network to China; So can we expect another very important international social media, Twitter, is seeking the way to China as well? So who will it partner with this time?

Jack comes at the right time since Weibo is getting so hot right now in China. But how much chance Twitter may have here? ~25%, maybe……

Stay tuned, we will keep you posted.

  1. Weibo needs to buy a social network such as Kaixin so that it can allow people to build their personal profiles around the content they are sharing. If it did this I think it would be a more important network than both Twitter and Facebook.

  2. seems it won’t happen as rumored, at least not so soon as in this May.
