Jimmy Lai, the owner of Apple Daily who is also known as Lai Chee-Ying (黎智英), went on Twitter as the situation deteriorates in Hong Kong under the tyranny of the Chinese Communist Party. But somehow his account could not be found via the Twitter search box initially.
Oddly, his Twitter account cannot be found in the search box of Twitter as of 11:12 PM US Central Time on May 24.
Jimmy Lai’s Twitter account became searchable as of 10:22 AM US Central Time on May 25 after the release of this article. One might ask how long it takes for a new Twitter account to be searchable?
