Yao Chen, queen of microblog
Actress Yao Chen has become the first person with 5 million followers on China's microblog service, Xinhua reports.
A statement from Sina, which runs the microblog service, crowned Yao "microblog queen," saying she attracts so many Internet users because she expresses her true feelings on her microblog. Yao has more microblog fans than American TV celebrity Oprah Winfrey has on her Twitter.
The 32-year-old actress, who announced her divorce Friday, rocketed to fame in 2006 for her role in the sitcom "My Own Swordsman." She also starred in the phenomenally successful TV series "Lurk."
