China is the world’s largest social media market.Like their English-speakingcounterparts, Chinese-speaking internet users have developed their own subcultures and slang as they react to viral videos, spread hysterical memes, and find faster—and often goofier—ways of expressing themselves via keyboards.Like English internet slang, Chinese internet slang transforms the Chinese language in unexpected and highly nuanced ways.
