Epoch Times reported that, in the morning on July 12, 2012, sina.com, a Chinese social media, removed the popular miniblog (weibo) account of the U.S. Consulate in Shangahi. A search by the Epoch Times staff of the weibo account at sina.com returned the following: “Search result cannot be displayed due to relevant law, regulations and policy.” Apparently the weibo account of the U.S. Consulate spokesperson was also deleted. Searches for “U.S. Consulate in Hong Kong,” “U.S. Embassy in China,” “Embassy in China,” and "Embassy” at sina weibo returned errors saying the search results could not be displayed.
