Weibo Blocks Photo Uploading in Ningbo
Among ongoing protests in Ningbo against the expansion of a petrochemical plant, Sina Weibo users report they are unable to upload photos to the site from local IP addresses. Attempts are met with this message: “20021 transmitted contents is illegal.”
Netizens recommend the following workarounds:
1. Change your location on your Weibo profile to another province.
2. Turn off the wifi connection on your phone.
3. Turn off Weibo geotagging.
