"They told us we had to delete illegal material, especially anti-government information" anywhere it was found, Ng said in an interview. "One security official said they had to shut down a major weibo portal that day and the boss of the company had to go meet with authorities at night, even though it was raining."
Well-known political blogger Michael Anti, whose recent posts include information on the Guangzhou protests, said he too is feeling the heat. Anti said he recently was contacted by an editor at the portal Sina who told him to tone down his weibo feeds if he didn't want his content blocked. Anti capitulated. He's decided to save sensitive material for his Twitter account. Like Ng, the Beijing resident accesses Twitter through a foreign server to avoid Chinese censors.
