According to media sources, Chinese authorities have blocked the keyword “Egypt” from searches on Twitter-like micro-blogging sites. It sends a strong indication to those thinking to unrest the same condition at there in China. Communist Party leaders are not in possible to tackle some spoilage at this stage comparing to Egypt. It could encourage similar calls for political reform in China.
Internet censors also appeared Sunday to have deleted almost all of the comments posted beneath the few limited reports on the unrest—mostly from the state-run Xinhua news agency—which have been published on Chinese news sites in the last few days. (Via WSJ)
It clears that Govt. stand on Egyptian democracy failure. It is strictly away from the Communist Party line, & they don’t want Internet to be a monopoly in China also. It briefs, Internet as source of learning & information for Chinese people. Apart from these restrictions, there is no more viability of Internet in Chinese territory.
China which has shared diplomatic protocols with Egypt, also urged Chinese people not to plan for travel to Egypt. China’s state media have provided limited coverage of the unrest in Egypt, including the scores of reported deaths, the cutting of Internet and cellphone access, and President Hosni Mubarak’s appointment of a vice president. Most newspapers, television stations and news portals have stuck closely to the official Xinhua reports, which they haven’t featured prominently, while abstaining from independent reporting or commentary.

Chinese Govt. had already put his arms on Internet channels in China & blocked almost every social networking site. Google was the first victim of Chinese Censorship policy, even thou which was retrieved on later stage. Currently, we reported similar claims on Facebook. Baidu & other Internet kingdoms growth in China, also remarks about territorial growth & Internet legacy in China. China forced locals networking sites to be the part of growth engine instead of worldwide giants. Chinese authorities are keeping a beep on all sorts of information intercepting across the territory as news or source of knowledge. Egyptian mutiny may appeal similar messages to Chinese too, as Governmental system quite doubtful in China also. In spite of spectacular growth, Chinese are bounded with limited resources only, for example Internet.
