"The whole Twitter community in China has been exploding with it," said Beijing-based technology commentator Kaiser Kuo.
"It's just part of life here. If anything surprises me, it's that it took them so long."
Here's Twitter's reaction:
As one Chinese Tweetnik put it:
其实，fuck 墙不重要。重要的事情有两件：1.告诉周围的人有GFW的存在。 2.传播翻墙工具，甚至开发翻墙工具。 化愤怒为智慧，才有力量。
Really, fuck the great fire wall isn't that important. There are two things which are important: 1. Telling everybody that the great fire wall exists. 2. Spreading knowledge about devices for getting around the great wall, even hastening development of devices for overcoming the great fire wall. Spend anger to gain knowledge, this is the only way to be effective
