La diplomatie Twitter de la Chine

Abstract : Over the last few years, a growing number of Chinese diplomats and diplomatic missions (embassies and consulates) have opened accounts on Twitter. While most of the publications coming from these official diplomatic accounts aim to promote China’s soft power abroad, thus pertaining to public diplomacy, a new brand of diplomatic communication has emerged during the COVID-19 pandemic, often referred to as “wolf warrior diplomacy” because of the aggressive tone adopted by some diplomats to defend Beijing’s actions and discourse against its critics. These facets of its Twitter diplomacy allow China to pursue distinct foreign policy objectives, such as improving its international image and increasing its "discursive power", as well as reflect China's desire to assert itself on the international stage.
