The Washington Post has reported on a new study by researchers at Rice, Bowdoin and the University of New Mexico that “sheds unprecedented light on how China censors the 300 million users and 100 million daily messages of its Twitter-like platform, Weibo.” The researchers mentioned in the article include Bowdoin student David Phipps ’14, who worked with Jed Crandall, assistant professor at the University of New Mexico, last summer on this project.
