Government Communications (Go Online)

We usually talk about government communications from the perspective of people who talk to government. However, this time [1]it is government (the Chinese one) that is doing the communicating – online (h/t Sam Flemming [2])

The Wall Street Journal reports [3]on Wen’s online chat:

An interesting trend for the Chinese government (following the consumer?), who are more used to the formal (stifling) atmosphere of the Great Hall Of The People – where a different sort of chat has just started for the National People’s Congress [4] (NPC). And they will also be chatting online, according to Xinhua [5].

Whatever next? Twitter [6]?
