Gary King agrees: Social media threaten democracy

Professor at the Harvard University, political scientist and quantitative methodologist

We estimate that the government fabricates and posts about 448 million social media comments a year. The Chinese regime’s strategy is to avoid arguing with skeptics of the party and the government, and to not even discuss controversial issues. We show that the goal of this massive secretive operation is instead to distract the public and change subject.
