1. Similar to the Chinese app of Xi Jinping thought?

He speaks, you obey!

There's a reason my Chinese wife calls Xi the "Chinese Donald Trump."

6. Communications tool is a bit grandiose.

9. It's a blog, and The Hill knows that.

Yet, they're touting it as if it's the next big leap in social media platforms.
