Alibaba, Tencent, Baidu and Weibo have taken down 60,000 accounts that had inappropriate, vulgar or sexual usernames and avatars. Some were misleading and others were considered 'harmful.'
Weibo reportedly kicked 5500 accounts for promoting terrorism and Tencent deleted accounts that promoted gambling and firearms.
Most likely, some of the accounts were deleted because they did not have the user's real name attacked, a new rule from the Chinese government for all accounts.
