And I think you cannot consider one use of "~~" formal just because a famous writer used it.

comment Meaning of “~~” at the end of a sentence
The use in the dictionary are only in dictionaries, and introduced in the introductions(凡例) in the dictionary. They are only used for easy reading and printing of the dictionary. So it should not be considered a "formal" use of the symbol, as the dictionary can choose any symbol for this purpose, as long as it give a detailed introduction to the symbols used. However, nearly all dictionary choose to use "~" now for this purpose.

comment 央行行长会: Is the second 行 necessary?
Insterestingly, 国防部长 could be considered an accepted word. For协会长, the search includes a lot phrases like "律协/会长" where 律协 is an abbreviation and 会长 is a title. "协会长" itself is not a word here.

comment What greetings or sayings are there that are used during the new year, specific to the Year of the Snake?
I much easier to understand now. Maybe the mix of Chinese and English made things hard to understand.
