Beijing's administrative law enforcement fined Weibo, China's Twitter-like social media platform, 30,000 yuan for spreading pornography. 

This is the latest move of the national campaign against production, sale, and distribution of illegal publications and online erotic content launched in February by the National Office Against Pornographic and Illegal Publications

Investigators found that Weibo began creating videos in February 2015 without a license, and the content includes obscene videos. They immediately required the social media giant to remove the unwanted content.
