Tom Cruise is surely the first Hollywood star to join the Sina Microblog, a Twitter-like service in China. Surprisingly, in just two days, Cruise has attracted over 60,000 Chinese fans following his microblog updates. He seems to be satisfied with the switch, posting an interesting tweet on his official Twitter account: “We’re having fun talking to you & our new friends at http://t.sina.com.cn/ It’s the Chinese Twitter, but with a lot more functionality, CIO.” Yay, Cruise thinks that Chinese Twitter is better than America’s Twitter, and he is now following 367 Sina Microblog users, including pop singers from Hong Kong and Taiwan.

Looks like Cruise is very interested on China, since China is a huge market which shouldn’t be neglected. Being a Hollywood star, Cruise has a super massive amount of fans in China, and by joining the Sina Microblog, it is probably the best way to stay connected with Chinese fans. Without any doubts, Cruise’s new account has become a big news, blanketing the Chinese Internet less than two hours after his first post. Here’s what he said to all his Sina Microblog fans:
Hello and thank you to everyone who is being so nice to us here. It’s exciting to be here with you We look forward to learning more about 微博 !!! We will be writing a www.TomCruise.com/Blog about our experience here soon and will post the link here when we do!

Amazing huh? His first post generated over 2,000 comments. The comments are pretty interesting, and for those users who are followed by Cruise, they are super excited about it. A user from Guangzhou says, “Cruise is following me! I’m getting rich!” What’s more surprising is that Cruise follows the Phoenix Television (the most popular Chinese television broadcaster) on Sina Microblog too.

So, what’s really important is that Cruise thinks Sina Microblog has more features than Twitter, since Sina Microblog has added pictures, in-stream replies, groups and other features that make it much closer to a full-featured social network than a Twitter knockoff. And we are wondering, will there be more celebrities from the West joining the Chinese Twitter after Cruise making the first move?
