In other Radiohead news, the band have started a blog on the ‘Weibo’ website in China, despite having been critical of the country’s human rights record in the past. The band have been quite outspoken about Chinese policies, and have performed a Free Tibet concert in the past.
The ‘Weibo’ site is the Chinese equivalent of Twitter, and Sina.com who own the portal site have verified the account as the band’s official Weibo. Currently there is only one message on the blog, “Testing the weibo”. However, the band would not be able to make any anti-government or critical remarks as the Chinese government moderate all comments made through the countries internet.
