Japanese Porn Star Sora Aoi Phenomenon in Chinese Weibo biggrin.gif
As soon as Japanese porn star Sora Aoi opened her Sina Weibo account appropriately on Nov. 11, 2010, Chinese Singles Day, she immediately became one of the hottest bloggers in China. In the world of the microblogging, the attention focused on the AV actress is beyond imagination and she is now listed no. 1 in the most influential microblogger polls.

Although she only posted a short notice on the first day , announcing she has opened an account on the Sina Weibo website as saying, "Hello to all Chinese friends, I'm Sora Aoi. Very pleased to meet you all. I have officially opened my Sina Weibo account, hopefully through this account we can get to know each other well. "

In her first six hours, Sora Aoi gained 130,000+ followers, exceeding her numbers on Twitter. By the end of the first day, her followers reached 220,000. Afterwards, in just over two months, she has accumulated 950,000+ followers; a number which continues to increase at a rate of over 10,000 per day.

Sora Aoi first rose to online fame when a Chinese netizen discovered her account on Twitter and shared to Sina Weibo: "Do you want to be face to face with Sora Aoi? Then go onto Twitter. Can't get on twitter? Then send email to, it has auto reply." Clearly, not all Chinese netizens who leap the Great Wall are political dissidents.

Sora Aoi decided to join Sina Weibo after a flood of Chinese followers found her on Twitter.

Even China's police pay close attention to Sora Aoi's blog, with the online blog of a police station in Dalian making her blog their sole interest.

Sora Aoi's presence is controversial in a country where porn is illegal,but also extremely popular. In fact, more and more foreign stars-of all professions, but especially Taiwanese pop stars-are using Weibo to connect to an eager mainland Chinese audience.

The reason for her popularity on the blog, according to the media, is that she entertains but never spams. She broadcasts but also listens and engages. Lastly, her posts are clearly authentic-clearly her-rather than a hired PR gun.

One of her posts said, "I know Chinese don't understand Japanese, so I try to write in English. but when I wrote in Japanese, I can't translation in English. SORRY!!"

She also expressed respect for Chinese culture biggthumpup.gif . Sora Aoi gained popularity when she appealed to followers on her Twitter account to donate to those hit by the deadly earthquake in Qinghai Province, China in April 2010. biggthumpup.gif

The most important thing maybe the daily renewal of Sora Aois photos.

Many celebrities view Weibo as a one-way channel of communication, but Sora Aoi interacts with her fans in ways that win their continued loyalty.

There are tens of thousands of porn stars out there, but no other has nearly a million fans on Sina Weibo. Sora Aoi has clearly made the most of her opportunity.
