15 Sep – Even Hollywood heartthrob Hugh Jackman cannot resist the power of Sina Weibo, China's version of the popular social media, Twitter
He (or perhaps rather his PR personnel) has opened a verifed account (signified by the V sign) and left his first message on Wednesday.
"Hi everyone, NI HAO MA? Hugh Jackman here, I'm new to the Weibo world but excited to be here to meet with you."
Mainland Chinese actress Li Bingbing, his co-star in "Snow Flower and the Secret Fan", wrote "Scatter flowers to welcome you".
In response, Jackman left his second message on Thursday morning, saying: "Special shout-out to Bingbing for this personal welcome message, how are you now? Hope all is fine!"
Within two days, the Australian actor has attracted over 50,000 followers.
