Sina Weibo on the Chopping Block

(China Media Project)

On the 28 May, new management regulations too effect for Sina Weibo, one of China’s most popular social media sites as part of the regime’s crackdown on social media in the country.

According to (new) regulations, Netizens logging more than 5 posts of “sensitive information” would be prevented from posting for 48 hours and have relevant content deleted.

In the above cartoon posted by artist Kuang Biao to Sina Weibo, a distressed Chinese Netizen prepares to feed a post by hand into his computer as a sharp blade hovers at the top of the screen.
