Really loving the new WeChat emojis (as shown in 1st pic below). And it’d be nice to add something like pic 2 soon enough to reflect investor bewilderedness amid all the China corporate/market/ipo twists and drama in the past few weeks https://t.co/RXolek3Sqv

Never thought I’d read about DXP quotes on a topic like this but this column by @LuisaTamTam cracked me up. Fingers crossed people take the risks more seriously. https://t.co/fyiwSJC3YG https://t.co/eNtACNevJx

Lots of great details by @QiZHAI @julie_zhuli @chenglengtr on how a 20-min speech cost Jack Ma's $35 bln Ant IPO. This probably has sounded unbelievable to much of the world. But even Ma may have underestimated Beijing's fear of a financial oligarchy https://t.co/1jcbUuFUm3

Ant suspended its record-breaking $37 billion share sale after watchdogs met founder Jack Ma.  Whatever happens next, the delay reflects badly on Shanghai as a venue for corporate fundraising, writes @JennHughes13: https://t.co/8tcBeS5rS9 https://t.co/evGM69HFtQ

Welcome to the new China, where political control is far more important than business. Hard not to think back to how Tencent suffered under gaming license delays. Now the world’s largest IPO has stalled. As bad as US policy has been for China tech, Xi’s gov’t is also a huge risk. https://t.co/asEsI76C2B

This is the key takeaway from today's news. No matter how rich and powerful you are, no matter how important your firm is for Chinese innovation and growth, you don't critique the government publicly and get away with it, even when you cite Xi... https://t.co/LPiNmAYiRE

1/3 Single's Day is very splashy but we should not overstate its significance. While an extravagant shopping spree that day may temporarily boost consumption in China, it really doesn't tell us much about any overall rebalancing towards consumption. https://t.co/nu60Sa5qTI

More on "involution" from Caixin: https://t.co/vzJ8AChh7u China has just unveiled a summary of its next five-year plan, acknowledging the "imbalances" at home. Watch this space.

The popularity of "involution" shows this trend is continuing, as ordinary people - in particular the middle or lower class - are feeling more and more trapped from the pressure of buying a house, finding a partner, securing a decent job, and sending kids to a good school 4/

Back in 2017, I wrote about this tea chain w/ @TonyMunroe1 which capitalized on the concept of "sang", a Chinese character associated with the word “funeral” that describes being dispirited. It reflected a growing sense of defeatism among China's young:https://t.co/zmZbsjbF2K 3/

On the picture are four questions about ancient Chinese poetry. One of them asked: which line in this poetry conveyed the meaning that "ducks swimming in the river are the first messenger of spring". I swear, back when I was in kindergarten, I was probably still drawing ducks. 2/

These days, the term “involution" is all the buzz on Chinese social media. What does it mean? In short, it means more competition for less return; or reduced upward mobility. Here's an example. My friend just posted about what her kid -still in kindergarten- is asked to study: 1/ https://t.co/VymoxYYydm

American elections are closely watched in China, but this time the outcome of the U.S. presidential election next week may matter less to Beijing. My latest: https://t.co/gKH8sOHU2j

The People's Bank of China has asked developers to report monthly investments, loans and more. It’s an extraordinary step to rein in China Evergrande and peers, which have amassed at least $2.5 trillion of debt, writes @ywchen1: https://t.co/A0SovsMxrJ https://t.co/mjwUI2hx7K
