China's Sina plans English-language microblog
One of China's biggest Web portals says it plans to launch an English-language microblog, entering a market dominated by U.S.-based Twitter.
Sina Corp. said Thursday the English-language service of its popular Chinese-language Weibo microblog will be aimed at foreign users. It said no date was set for a launch.
The company says the new English-language service will be subject to Chinese government regulations on content that require censors to remove material on sensitive topics.
