Weibo among 59 Chinese apps banned in India.

Weibo is also one of the 59 Chinese apps that have been banned in India. The Chinese microblogging website was a great alternative to Twitter. A lot of officials and brands had their accounts registered on the Chinese platforms. Even brands like Xiaomi often made announcements via the platform. 

Sina Weibo, for those who don’t know, is a Chinese microblogging website. The website was launched back in 2009 by Sina Corporation in China. Since then, it has managed to get over 445 million monthly active users (as of Q3, 2018).

In case you had an account on the platform, you will no longer be able to access it as long as you are in India or you chose to use a VPN service. The app is not only removed from the Google Play Store and Apple App Store but it is also restricted from being used through Indian ISPs and telecom operators.    

Here’s the complete list of apps that have been banned in India:
