Shanghai-based Social Media Experts




Tonight we will host the third Shanghai Tweet up. Twitter is banned in China, but within the last 15 hours more than 20 people have said they will attend. (I contacted former attendees by email and others via Twitter. I will poll tonight to see how many pure Twitter attendees turn up.)
As with the other Tweet-ups I have done in KL, Singapore, Beijing, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Istanbul a great group of people turned up. Many of them some of the leading experts in Social Media.
Due to my limited Mandarin, however, most are English speaking.
Who would you add to this list of Social Media experts in Shanghai?
