Sina takes down its apps for a self-check of content perspective
The cleanup campaign for Chinese cyberspace initiated by authorities has lasted for about half a year, and the latest “victim” is the traditional tech giant Sina. Having been reported “vulgar and false” content across Weibo and Sina blog, the social behemoth voluntarily suspended updates of several self-owned applications for one month. Harmed by unreliable online posts from unknown resources, the world has seen a combined force purging lowbrow content of social media platforms. Taking India as an example, the government is in the process of banning TikTok from the country, which is deemed a threat to national security as well as a being under suspicion of circulating pornography.
