China made big news last week by amending its constitution to allow President Xi to stay in power beyond the normal 10 years. While the move found great support from the Chinese party elite appointed by Xi, others in China are not all that happy about Xi being given powers not attained by anybody in China since Mao. The Chinese censors have long had a pretty tight grasp on social media in the country in order to curb any dissent. For example, Chinese censors in cooperation with service providers in China have used automated tools that eliminate certain key terms from social media discussions. But we all know that signature-based filtering of “known bad words” is tricky.
