India Blocks China’s Weibo & Baidu Search In Fresh Salvo

Government has ordered blocking of Baidu Search and Weibo, long dubbed as China’s indigenous alternatives to Google and Twitter respectively. Weibo was one of the Chinese apps in the list of 59 that were to be banned according to the order passed on June 29.

The two apps, flagship internet products from China where Google Search and Twitter are not accessible in the mainland, have been taken off the Google Play Store and iOS App Store in India, while internet service providers (ISPs) have been asked to block access to these apps.
