“This chapter is an account of how Cui Weiping collated the first reactions of intellectuals and artists to Liu Xiabo’s conviction and eleven-year sentence. Spurred into action by her own outrage and sense of injustice, Cui moved to collect these comments in the form of “Tweets” — short, concise summaries of what people told her over the phone — and later posted them online on her blog. Together, they make for a fascinating testimony to the mood of the intellectual elites in that consequential moment.”
