China kills 9,300 apps and tears into Tencent's news service

China is stepping up its efforts to rein in the country’s internet, singling out Tencent Holdings Ltd.’s popular news app for spreading vulgar information while shutting down more than 700 websites and thousands of apps in the span of just three weeks.

The Cyberspace Administration of China has scrubbed the web of more than 7 million items since Jan. 3, deleting more than 9,300 smartphone apps to screen out information deemed inappropriate or harmful, the watchdog said in a notice distributed to media.

They doing this because of Trump...
China doesn't need Trump as an excuse/reason. They are still a dictatorship using modern technology to suppress their people. And SA (ANC) sees nothing wrong with this, in spite of our much vaunted Constitution.
