The use of Cantonese has profound significance, as it shows that EDPF maintains Guangzhouers' subversive discourse since the 2010 pro-Cantonese protest.
Apart from the deliberate linguistic choice, EDPF constantly displays Guangzhou's cultural products and links them with the immediate living conditions and experience in Guangzhou.
There is another layer of significance about the terms 'local' and 'traditional' as EDPF makes them the metaphor for financial affordability.
In addition to displaying Guangzhou's local culture and linguistic practice through Weibo's visualisation and typing functions, EDPF also organises Guangzhouers' experience with Hong Kong and waisheng to constitute a collective sense of self and belonging.
EDPF reposts news reports from the mainstream media in the 'Disadvantaged group' and 'Human interests' categories.
