Chinese internet giants Tencent, Baidu and Sina Weibo are under investigation for cyber-security violations, the mainland’s office for cyberspace administration said on Friday.

An English translation of a notice on the office’s website said the social media platforms of the three companies — WeChat, Tieba and Weibo respectively — have users spreading “violent, terror, false, rumored, and pornographic information that damages national and public security [in addition to] disrupting social order.”
