量討論度最高的政治人物，但隨著 2020 大選將至，藍綠對決態勢再現，號稱白色力量的柯文哲反而被邊緣化。不知是否為了重新創造話題，柯文哲近日以「台灣阿北」自稱，悄悄開通微博帳號，要和對岸網友搏感情，引發網路熱議。
TAIPEI (The China Post) – Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je (柯文哲) recently started a Sina Weibo account under the name “Taiwan Elderly” in the local dialect with the aim of building a friendly relationship with netizens from across the Taiwan Strait. The bold move sparked heated discussions online, however, as the once-popular politician has been marginalized by outsiders from the two major parties in the 2020 Presidential Election in Taiwan.
柯文哲在 4 月 8 號發文寫到「大家好，我是台北市長柯文哲。大多數人都叫我『柯P』。作為一名醫學院教授，我明白充足的資訊交流，才能讓各項病症得到妥善照料，更明白保持『多元開放』的重要性。」
“Hi everyone, I’m Taipei Mayor Ko Wen-je and most people call me ‘Ko P’ (柯P). As a professor at a College of Medicine, I know the importance of exchanging sufficient information and being open to ‘diversity’ to provide a careful symptomatic treatment,” Ko said in his first post on Weibo.
Ko uploaded the video to greet citizens, inviting them to “know various perspectives of Taipei” by subscribing to his Weibo account.
Some mainland Chinese praised the “brave” of Ko for creating the Weibo account; the first mayor registering a Weibo account in Taiwan.
According to the ETtoday, Huang Ching-yin, a deputy spokeswoman of Taipei City Government, stressed that Ko aims to introduce and market Taipei City through the aforesaid social media account.
