Meet the Influencers

Activists from around the world talk about building a social media following and how platforms are part of their work.

For this special project in Rest of World, I interviewed two activists with big online influence about the way they use social media:

  • 竹顶针 (Zhudingzhen) @bamboo_thimble, a Chinese Weibo blogger who used to have more than 800,000 followers on Weibo before his account was censored.

  • Netiwit Chotiphatphaisal @Netiwitntw, a Thai student activist known for protesting Thailand's authoritarian military government.
