China Blocks Plurk, Twitter Next?
It seems as if microblogging service Plurk is blocked in China, at least according to Amir Salihefendic who works on the project. TechCrunch seemingly confirms. Bad news for Chinese Plurk lovers, and users who in any way like to communicate with people in China.
Does this mean that Twitter is next?
