Where’s Xi? Using New Code Words, China’s Netizens Speculate by the Thousands

It’s a cat and mouse game for netizens who are interested in Mr. Xi’s coming and goings. Certain code words for Mr. Xi, such as “Crown Prince (太子)” or XJP, are blocked search terms on Sina Weibo. However, netizens have invented others, such as heir apparent (王储) and second in command (二当家). A search for the phrase “Where is She,” a play on the pronunciation of Mr. Xi’s name, yielded more than 9,000 results.
