    I agree. But apparently there are 3 million wechat users in Australia.

    I'd hope that WeChat is not the only way to reach them.

    Ok so apparently foreign nationals are not allowed to operate public wechat accounts. So the Australian government setup the Prime Ministers account in 2019 by using Mr Ji who is some Chinese dude in Fuzhou. But then the account grew to 75000 followers, so as you do, Mr Ji decides to sell the account to Mr Huang, a Chinese businessman looking for a lot of followers. Mr Huang has no idea who the Australian PM is, changes his profile picture and name, deletes all the crap posts made by the Aussie PM, and BAM instantly scores himself a wechat account with 75k followers
