Sina Weibo Begins Censoring "Pearlher" - Username of Young Woman Who Called for Aid for Chen Guangcheng

As the screenshot shows, as of the morning of April 27, 2012 (Beijing time), Sina Weibo was returning over 52,000 results for a search for "pearlher."

"Pearlher" is the online name of He Peirong (何培蓉). Early in the morning of April 27, Pearlher tweeted:

All Internet users in Shandong, I beg you to please drive your cars along Route 205, look for Kegui, and provide whatever help is needed! I'm already unable to go out, otherwise I would certainly take the first car there.


The screenshot shows that, within hours of her tweeting this, searches for "pearlher" on Sina Weibo stopped returning results and began returning a notice saying: "In accordance with relevant laws, regulations, and policies, searches for "pearlher" have not been displayed" (根据相关法律法规和政策,“pearlher”搜索结果未予显示).!/pearlher/status/195616065030598658
