Webizen and netizen are a bit like the using the cyber prefix for things related to the Internet, in that they sound somewhat ridiculous if used in earnest. Once upon a time they may have been useful to refer to a small group of people engaged in a niche activity, now it's like having a special word for people who use electricity. That article by Alex Herne would make just as much sense if he said "Chinese citizens" instead of "Chinese webizens".
