Anonymous asked: Is Tumblr blocked in China?
Specifically in Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and Guangzhou.
Didn’t check Tumblr very often when I was abroad, but Internet access in Hong Kong was the same as the U.S., while Tumblr worked on-and-off when I was in Shenzhen and Guangzhou. One hour the site would be blocked, then cleared an hour later. What’s nice about Tumblr is that the site hosts its own images; in the mainland, any media hosted on censored sites (like Twitter/Twitpic, occasionally Photobucket/Imageshack/etc) loaded as blank, even if they’re linked externally.
