Medium is now blocked in China
Blogging platform Medium is now blocked in China, according to tests. The site, co-founded by former Twitter CEO Evan Williams, launched in August 2012. Even though other blog services like Google’s Blogspot got whacked by China’s Great Firewall many years ago, Medium had gone uncensored until now. A network ping test on Medium’s homepage within mainland China confirms that the site cannot be reached. We’ve found the site to be inaccessible on all three Chinese telcos.
