All the problems of Facebook, plus probably more state surveillance.

Ilmatar! What a nightmare! I’m already losing sleep over the implementation of section 889 of the 2019 NDAA. I’m hopping I don’t have to effin’ check everyone’s phones for WeChat, too…

Gonna go cuddle mah buhnays,

I needed to use a VPN to help keep me in touch with the outside world when I was in China. Now, it looks like I may have to use one again. (I can’t find confirmation on whether or not WeChat will be actually blocked, and besides, that may change anyway.)

So good to be back in the land of the free.

You know this is fishy when WeChat is targeted but not QQ
