A microblogging website targeted at Chinese users.

Weibo (Sina Weibo) is a microblogging website based in China. It is a hybrid of Twitter and Facebook and appeals mainly for Chinese users. Founded on August 14, 2009, the site is now being used by more than 30% of internet users.

The site was created due to the blocks on the non-China based websites like Twitter and Facebook, which created an opportunity for the creation of this site to appeal to the Chinese community.
