(Yicai Global) Nov. 10 -- After finishing his daily exercise routine at 7 a.m., Jason Yun opened Weibo (China’s Twitter) on his iPhone 7 Plus and started to check friends’ posts. One was a video starring Benedict Cumberbatch that mocked the US presidential candidates.
Yun watched and laughed. He then tapped WeChat’s familiar green double-callout icon and sent the video -- ‘The Story of the 2016 US Presidential Election’ -- to his best friend Qing Qin in California. “Watched this under Wi-Fi conditions J,” he texted.
