Banned In China
Rarely does uncensored speech make its way through China’s internet, but that’s been happening on audio-only social network Clubhouse. Well, *was* happening, at least. The app allowed users on mainland China to communicate with people living in Hong Kong and Taiwan. On Monday, that all changed. According to a U.S. non-profit that tracks internet filtering, the Great Firewall of China has been extended to include Clubhouse, denying access to users living in the country. According to the AP, Clubhouse hasn’t commented and China’s government denies the existence of internet filters.
