Widening net of China censors puts tech on notice
China's Great Firewall is moving beyond targeting (primarily) political content to instead increase"its grip on cultural and social discourse among the web-savvy youth," as indicated by its recent move to block gay content on the Twitter-like Weibo social media platform. The move spooked investors, as Weibo's stock took a big dip on Friday.

Reuters reports: "The widening net of Chinese censors have put tech on notice. Jokes and gay content are disappearing from the web. It's a fresh sign that Beijing is policing beyond political discourse. For the $26 billion microblog Weibo and peers, appeasing both users and regulators will get harder...It vividly illustrates how censors are shifting the goal posts for Weibo and other social networks like the $6 billion video broadcasting app YY and the $488 billion gaming giant Tencent. Beijing has moved from targeting politically-sensitive content to extending its grip on cultural and social discourse among the web-savvy youth...Investors caught off guard by the latest crackdown wiped $2 billion off Weibo's market capitalisation on Friday, highlighting the risks...China's internet cleanup is proving bad for business."

China's Sina Weibo reverses gay content clean-up after outcry
Chinese internet users rose up in protest over the weekend, circulating hashtags like "#Iamgaynotapervert" after Sina Weibo declared on Friday that it planned to censor gay content on its Twitter-like Weibo platform. Now, Sina Weibo has said that its content cleanup efforts "would no longer target gay content," Reuters reports:

"China’s Sina Weibo on Monday reversed a decision to remove gay content after outcry among gay Chinese who say the company had smeared homosexuality by lumping it with pornography as it tried to meet government censorship directives. China’s Twitter-equivalent Weibo said on Friday it would remove pornographic, violent or gay videos and cartoons in a three-month campaign, singling out a genre of manga animations and comics that often depict raunchy gay male relationships. In response, gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) advocates poured online to criticise the decision using hashtags, open letters and even calls to dump Sina shares. On Monday, Sina said the clean-up would no longer target gay content. The outcry reflects a fear that growing censorship tends to ban all gay content as 'dirty', a setback for efforts to carve out an online space of tolerance for homosexuality in China’s traditionally Confucian society, LGBT advocates say. It was unclear whether Sina’s measure was a direct result of a censorship directive from the government or an initiative taken by the company itself. Sina did not respond to a request for comment."
