Abstract

The data from the 51st "Statistical Report on the Development Status of China's Internet Network" by CNNIC reveals that China's internet user base has reached 1.067 billion, underscoring its integral role in national life. Sina Weibo, as China's largest social media platform, not only addresses the entertainment needs of users but also amplifies diverse voices, including those of influential mainstream media users. Concurrently, there has been a sharp increase in the frequency and intensity of emergencies over the past few years. These events, due to their unpredictable and sensitive nature, rapidly form and widely disseminate public opinion shortly after their occurrence. Without proper guidance and control, they can have a detrimental impact on society. The accumulation of continuous emergencies further intensifies public emotions, escalating the challenges for governmental control. Consequently, effectively guiding the network public opinion of continuous emergencies and enhancing the government's capacity for network public opinion governance during crises represent crucial tasks.
