Zuola Twitters Minute By Minute of His Arrest Abduction

This post on Valley Wag reports that Chinese dissident Zhou “Zuola” Shuguang was recently…well, kidnapped is really the only way to describe it…picked up by the police, transported into the country, and dumped.

Apparently this isn’t rare. Random abductions are not uncommon. But what is is that Zuola Twittered throughout his abduction, so Twitterers could follow along in 140 character installments.

See the Twitters and read the translations. Amazing. Now THIS is the power of digital. It also shows the incredible courage of remarkable individuals. The dude's got chutzpah.

Thanks for reading, and don't forget to write.
