Weibo Statistics and FactsWith a number of Chinese digital companies going public in the US in the near future, Western interest in these companies with gigantic user bases is starting to grow. One of these China-based social behemoths is Weibo. Weibo, a microblogging service, is commonly referred to as the "Chinese Twitter." It is one of the most popular domestic Chinese social media platforms with an active user base nearing a half billion people. As you will see from the stats below, Weibo may resemble Twitter, but its user base and engagement rates among its core audience has eclipsed its American counterpart..
