China wants Twitter to close accounts of critics.

China has asked that Twitter remove and shut down the accounts of people who criticise China citing that if Twitter wants to defeat misinformation it should stop the disinformation of China claiming it is the victim of a large number of inaccurate news reports.

Chinese foreign ministry spokeswoman Hua Chunying told reporters during a briefing that many platforms had much falsehood about China and that there was a need for Chinese voices with objective views.

This is of course ironic as it does not allow its citizens to access Twitter as it is blocked in the mainland. If you want to stop disinformation, start with your own citizens, tell them the truth instead of spreading propaganda.
