Tom Cruise may seem a bit crazy at times but he sure knows how to catch attention. This time though, he’s targeting the Chinese market.
Last week, Tom Cruise became the first Hollywood star to join Sina’s “Wei Bo” (translated as microblog) which is China’s version of Twitter.
Very quickly, in less than a week, Tom has attracted over 186,000 followers. He seems to be happy with China’s microblog and posted an interesting tweet on his official Twitter account: “We’re having fun talking to you & our new friends at http://t.sina.com.cn/ It’s the Chinese Twitter, but with a lot more functionality, CIO.” Interestingly, he is also following 404 Sina Microblog users, including pop singers from Hong Kong and Taiwan. Maybe he wants to make some Chinese celebrity friends?
There is no doubt that this is a good move by Tom and something that may become a new trend for western celebrities. China is a huge market and with Hollywood trying to reach a wide audience, staying connected with Chinese fans is definitely a good idea.
