Sensitive Words: Chen Guangcheng and More

Sensitive Words: Chen Guangcheng and More

As of April 29, the following search terms are blocked on Weibo (not including the “search for user” function):

Related to Chen Guangcheng: Abing (a famous blind musician of the 20th century, hence a reference to Chen), three requests (which Chen makes of Wen Jiabao in his YouTube video), Hu Jia + Zeng Jinyan (questioned by security officials for helping Chen)

Other Hot Topics: Wang Zheng (the Beijing professor released an open letter stating she saw Bo Xilai and knows the story behind his case), beauty shocked the Party (second artillerywoman Liu Yuanyuan’s Weibo debut went viral)
其他热点: 王铮(王铮近日发表公开信称见过薄熙来家人并了解内幕),美的惊动了党(昨日爆红网络的二炮女兵刘园园新浪微博自我简介)

Note: All Chinese-language words are tested using simplified characters. The same terms in traditional characters occasionally return different results.

CDT Chinese runs a project that crowd-sources filtered keywords on Sina Weibo search. CDT independently tests the keywords before posting them, but some searches later become accessible again. We welcome readers to contribute to this project so that we can include the most up-to-date information.
