Fol­low­ers: 162,330 by Oc­to­ber 16

Huang Zhix­ian, an an­chor­woman of a Tai­wanese po­lit­i­cal com­men­tary pro­gram, gained many more fol­low­ers on her Sina mi­croblog af­ter she posted a strong re­sponse to US Vice Pres­i­dent Mike Pence's lat­est speech on China de­liv­ered on Oc­to­ber 4, in which he claimed that the US has made a great con­tri­bu­tion to China's rise, while China re­paid the US by go­ing against free­dom and fair trade and even try­ing to “med­dle in the US elec­tion.” The speech trig­gered strong protest from the Chi­nese gov­ern­ment and the pub­lic, and Huang's open let­ter to Pence which listed how the US took part in bul­ly­ing, par­ti­tion­ing and con­trol­ling China in the late Qing Dy­nasty and the Repub­li­can era (from around 1900-1949), was viewed as one of the best ri­postes. “We un­der­stand the US'S neg­a­tive imag­i­na­tion of China's rise based on its de­sire to con­trol the whole globe, but it is not wise for the US to di­men­sion­ally sup­press China's rise all around,” Huang wrote in the open let­ter. Huang is well known across the Strait for her staunch sup­port of re­uni­fi­ca­tion be­tween the main­land and Tai­wan. Her let­ter has been shared over

14,000 times and liked more than 22,000 times.
