Baidu Bows Out of China Microblogging Race [blogs.wsj.com]

Search company Baidu, China’s most popular website, is has officially given up on its floundering microblogging service at a time when other Twitter-like weibo sites offered by rivals Sina and Tencent are becoming a force on the Chinese Internet.

A message posted on the Baidu Shuoba, or Baidu Talk, website this week says: “Due to adjustments in the company’s operations, starting today Shuoba is accepting no new user posts, and on August 22 the entire Shuoba service will be suspended.” The website had earlier suspended new user signups.

I guess the competition was already too firmly rooted by the time Baidu started this up.
