The Chinese internet companies are working on some options to get into the market through popular media like Twitter. The Chinese people faced many problems in accessing various websites and blogs. They were unable to open the links as these are dead and inaccessible. Due to these problems many of the Internet users left and stopped using blogging services.

The two other services namely NetEase and Sohu are kept for maintenance. The microbloggers on sina were unable to work on the International web sites. Some editor having the maximum number of followers mentioned on their microblog that many of the users could not even find their names on the internet.
The competitive site Sohu was affected badly in operation. As it was kept for the maintenance, the microblog facility offered by them had no search function.

The moserators and the webmaster of Sina removed this post later.

They mentioned that they were continuously testing as their operating system came into market and could not control users and their activities.
