Facebook and Twitter in China? Not so fast: Chinese daily newspaper People’s Daily contradicted a report earlier this week by Hong Kong paper the South China Morning Post that certain websites would be unblocked in a free-trade zone the government is planning to introduce in Shanghai.
Techweb reported on the story by People’s Daily, noting that the newspaper is an instrument of the Communist Party, so its take on the story is more likely to be accurate.
According to People’s Daily, via Techweb, there will be no changes to China’s Internet policy, even in the FTZ.
