Did China’s Twitter Play a Role in This Teenage Girl’s Murder?

From our friends at the Daily Dot: Like millions of other young women across China, 16-year-old Lai Zengyuting chronicled her life on Sina Weibo, the country’s Twitter-like microblogging network. The high school student from the southern mega-city Shenzhen liked to post pictures of food and pictures of herself, too. Sometimes, she posted her location, like she did on Jan. 11. The next day, Lai disappeared. The next day, police found her body dumped in a Shenzhen junk shop.
