“Bullet chats” is a system of commenting that overlays “flying” texts onto the video display also synchronizes them to the video timeline. Chinese youth mix foreign languages and Chinese to create their own cyber-pidgin and use it in “bullet chats”. How do they use “bullet chats” to create their own space and refuse outsiders from entering into the space both linguistically and visually? “Bullet chats” is graffiti on top of the original. It is a unique way to reject the ownership and copyright of the original.
