“China’s Internet censors have deleted U.S. Embassy posts promoting Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s speech on Internet freedom from microblogs, parrying U.S. efforts to spur debate about Beijing’s grip on free speech.

Clinton said on Tuesday that China faces a “dictator’s dilemma” on Internet censorship, and that the government risks being outrun by online opinion.

It is unclear whether their removal was ordered by the government or censored by the companies that host the Embassy’s microblogs, Sina.com and Tencent Holdings.”
