China Tightens Control of News Organizations’ Social Media Use

China’s media regulator stepped up controls on news organizations’ use of social media, including barring the retransmission of content from overseas media and websites without permission.

The State Administration of Radio Film and Television also said that editorial employees must get permission to set up microblogs for work purposes and to release any information they acquire when on duty, according an article dated yesterday on the regulator’s online publication chinaxwcb.com.
