The Counter-Narrative Strategies of Chinese State Media on Twitter
The People's Republic of China has significantly expanded its presence on global social media platforms over the past few years. China's premier social media outlet, CGTN, has hundreds of millions of followers on global social media platforms such as Facebook and Twitter. However, we have limited systematic understanding of how China is using these outlets to shape global public opinion. This talk, Jennifer Pan addresses this gap in knowledge by analyzing content produced by CGTN and comparing CGTN messaging against content produced by Western media outlets related to China in the same time period.
