By Xinhua Writers Wang Wen and Ji Shaoting

BEIJING, March 10 (Xinhua) -- A sense of achievement swept over Wang Donglin when his ideas on anti-terrorism education won support from his fellow political advisors in China.

Wang's "aha moment" came as he browsed his online networks and found his friends and acquaintance talking about ways to survive a terrorist attack. The discussion came only hours after Kunming bloodbath and lasted for days.

He is not the only member of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference (CPPCC) National Committee or deputy to the National People's Congress (NPC) who samples public opinion on mobile Internet. Of this year's deputies and members, 203 have real-name accounts on Chinese microblogging websites.

The ongoing Second Session of the 12th NPC and the Second Session of the 12th CPPCC National Committee have set up public WeChat accounts to forward latest news and service information to the general public.

The mobile Internet has found its way in Chinese people's political life.
