Chinese media slams Facebook and Twitter

One of China’s most prominent state media outlets attacked Twitter Inc. and Facebook Inc. for closing accounts that the U.S. social media companies said originated in China and were attempting to manipulate news about the protests in Hong Kong.

The two firms had made the “ludicrous and irresponsible“ claim that the Chinese government was behind the “fake accounts” but failed to provide evidence, according to the commentary in the English-language China Daily newspaper. [Bloomberg]
