TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — Advertisements have surfaced on job banks and social media pages in Taiwan seeking supporters of cross-strait unification to spread propaganda.
A user of social networking website Dcard wrote that they had discovered an ad recruiting supporters of “peaceful unification” to administer “political party Facebook pages,” CNA reports.
A screenshot of the now-deleted ad, posted to 104.com.tw on April 2, shows the recruiter would offer a monthly salary of between NT$20,000 and NT$50,000 for successful candidates to “manage party fan pages”—the condition being they support cross-strait unification.
Dcard users also said similar advertisements had appeared on Facebook. Recruiters were reportedly seeking social media celebrities that support cross-strait rapprochement for content mills. [FULL STORY]
