effectively.

citizens and government. A survey of 495 microbloggers shows that the medium is 
predominantly used to main using for acquiring information and for following 
celebrities as opinion leaders. The analysis explored the characteristic way of 
continuous exposure to public by microblog. The tree-structure of information flow as 
I modeled made a topic to a hot issue. Netizens are mastering this medium, harnessing 
the power of the microblog in order to solve their societal problems, choosing this 
form of action over previous actions such as letters, phone calls, or visits to the high
