1/4 May 20 (5.20) is China's Valentines Day on the Internet. Red Packets limit was raised to ¥520 ($80 US) for 1 day https://t.co/IIBwG7kfpz
@yaohongkok WeChat's Service Accounts platform already supports chatbots. Look at the popular 出门问问 and Microsoft's 小冰 as examples.
It started with a simple post this morning from our CEO showing that the limit on Red Packets (our popular WeChat gift money feature) was raised from ¥200 to ¥520 (~US$80) today (5.20, which is now an internet meme abbreviation for "I Love You"). As a result, possibly billions of RMB are being digitally transferred from thankless boyfriends and husbands to their significant others with this huge one-day prank. Happy 5.20 day to everyone!
MonMon is my favorite WeChat sticker and now is part of the Victoria & Albert Design Museum in London! https://t.co/djGnCio9l0
Movie weekend. "Captain America": fantastic. I wasn't a Black Panther fan before but I certainly am now.
Movie weekend in Hong Kong. "Anomalisa" is the last 2015 film I really wanted to catch. Tomorrow: "Captain America: Civil War".
Amazing. A mere few hours after it's premiere on the East Coast and I'm watching a fan subbed version of Game of Thrones season premiere here in China.
Finished watching the full series of "Horace and Pete", the online-only TV show that is also the best show of the year (for me and many critics) and Louis CK's dramedy version of pulling a Beyonce and dropping a "Death of a Salesman" masterpiece out-of-thin-air unexpected on the web. Highly recommended for fans of the theater and good writing and some Emmy deserving performances by Alan Alda and Steve Buscemi. I felt so strongly that I went back and purchased the series AFTER watching it in its entirety.
8/ It's WeChat's expertise in user experience, trust, and clear user value paramount for higher level features like payments and identity
7/ Not necessarily decoupled into separate experiences. The fact that this combined experience happens in a chat app is secondary.
