    Xi Jinping is storing trouble for himself by abolishing the ten year rule, where you have a designated successor who will take over at the end of your term. The beauty of the rule for the incumbent is that succession challenges focus on your deputy, not on you. Meanwhile your deputy is incentivised to be loyal to you as he knows he will take over.

    From what I can see Chinese social media is unimpressed by Xi's move. I guess you could make the same accusations against them as the Twitterati. Thing is, intellectuals have caused several major upsets over the past one hundred years of Chinese history.
